Drinkwater, a winner with in 2015-16, joined Chelsea for £35m in 2017.

Drinkwater has three England caps but has not appeared for his country since May 2016.

Burnley’s signings this summer include defender Erik Pieters from Stoke along with striker Jay Rodriguez from West Brom and goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell from Leeds United.
