Official: Chelsea Confirm Second January Exit

After spending nearly €250 million (R4.6 billion) ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, Chelsea have now announced Danny Drinkwater as their second January 2021 departure.

The 30-year-old joined the Blues from Leicester City in 2017, but has made just 23 appearances for the club since.

Following loan spells with Burnley and Aston Villa, Drinkwater has now joined Turkish Super League side Kasimpasa on loan until the end of the season.

Having won the Premier League title with the Foxes in the 2015/16 campaign, the midfielder's contract at Stamford Bridge is only set to expire in June 2022, and it remains to be seen whether or not he can revive his career in Turkey.

Drinkwater becomes Chelsea's second departure of this window after Lucas Piazon, who was the club's longest-serving player in their current squad, joined Braga on a free transfer.
