There’s a wild story making the rounds regarding the ankle injury that will cost Danny Drinkwater time on the pitch for Burnley.

Multiple reports say that the ankle injury came when he was attacked at a pub after repeatedly hitting on the girlfriend of a League Two player (Marca).

Burnley boss Sean Dyche won’t cancel Drinkwater’s loan move, according to Sky Sports, but is set to meet with the Chelsea loanee this week

Lancs Live claims that neither Burnley nor Chelsea have issued a comment on salacious reports that Drinkwater was thrown out of a Manchester night club and beaten up by a “gang of men,” suffering multiple injuries.

He’s expected to miss 2-3 weeks, and is yet to play a Premier League match during the loan deal. He played 90 minutes against Sunderland in a League Cup loss.

The 29-year-old has struggled on and off the field since transferring from Leicester City, and arrested for drunk driving after crashing his car last season.
