Burnley midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who is on loan from fellow Premier League side Chelsea, was reportedly attacked by six assailants after being thrown out of a nightclub in Manchester two weekends ago.

According to The Sun, the England international caused a scene when he allegedly harassed the girlfriend of South Africa's Kgosi Ntlhe.

Drinkwater, a 2015/16 Premier League champion with Leicester City, was promptly ejected from the club, which is when he was attacked by six unnamed assailants.

"At one point, he was curled up in a ball on the ground as they repeatedly jumped up and down on his ankle and shouting, 'Break his legs'," a source told The Sun.

"They knew he was a Premier League star and it was his livelihood. There was blood everywhere, and it was all incredibly nasty.

"Danny repeatedly tried to chat up a stunning girl in the club and wouldn't leave her alone.

"He tried it on a few times before she told him to shut up by saying she was there with her boyfriend. He confronted Danny in the club, and punches were thrown. Both men were kicked out, and whilst Danny was outside things turned really ugly.

"Some other lads really started on him. After a series of verbal exchanges, they knocked him to the ground. 

"He was then hit with an object about the face and body. They were raining blows on him and jumping on his ankle."

Drinkwater suffered torn ankle ligaments in the attack and was left with multiple cuts and bruises to his face, shoulders and arms.

There is no suggestion that Ntlhe, who currently plays for Scunthorpe United in League Two, was involved in the attack, nor that police were called to the incident, which was also not reported by Drinkwater.
