Aston Villa fans react as Danny Drinkwater extends loan stay

The on-loan Chelsea midfielder looks set to be with the club until the end of the current campaign.

Aston Villa are set to confirm the loan extension of Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater, according to the Express and Star.

The 30-year-old was on the bench for Villa in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves but missed the club’s previous three fixtures with an injury.

Drinkwater will be desperate to revive his career at Villa Park, having failed to get going so far.

Villa are 19th in the Premier League and face the embarrassing prospect of an instant return to the Championship.

Boss Dean Smith may feel that he can call upon the experience of Drinkwater during the club’s final six games of the campaign.

The Villans haven’t won since January; losing six of their last eight fixtures.

It is claimed that the Villa coaching staff have been impressed with Drinkwater’s attitude in training.

With that in mind, an extension to his loan has been sought with Chelsea happy to oblige for the final run-in.

Some Villa fans do remain uncertain of what part Drinkwater can play for the remainder of the season.

Several are disgruntled with the team’s fortunes and fear relegation is a foregone conclusion.

With that in mind, they have taken to Twitter to discuss whether or not Drinkwater can play a part between now and the end of the season.
