Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is set to head for the exit doors at Stamford Bridge this summer as it remains unlikely that he will be in Maurizio Sarri's plans for the upcoming season.

The 28-year-old arrived at Chelsea on Deadline Day last summer for £35 million however has failed to cement a starting role at the club, let along coming on as a substitute.

As per the Mirror, Southampton and Crystal Palace are interested in a deal to sign the midfielder, whether that be on a permanent basis or a loan deal.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be fighting for his spot at Chelsea once he returns from holiday.

Following the arrival of Jorginho, Drinkwater has fallen further down the pecking order in Maurizio Sarri's choices.

Unfortunately, he couldn't rekindle his partnership with N'Golo Kante - it's time for Chelsea to now cut their losses.
