Burnley man wanted by well-known European side, Aston Villa in potential FFP trouble, and more
A Burnley midfielder has been linked with a European exit in today's roundup of Premier League rumours.
Burnley's on-loan midfielder Danny Drinkwater has been linked with a shock European move.
Drinkwater is a Premier League winner with Leicester City, and joined Chelsea for £35m before moving to the Clarets on a temporary basis.
Things haven't gone to plan for Drinkwater, with his playing time limited, and a high-profile nightclub brawl making headlines.
Now, Turkish side Besiktas have been linked with a surprise move for the midfielder - according to The Sun, the European side are planning a raid on the Premier League in January.
They would reportedly be looking at an 18-month loan switch for Drinkwater, though it remains to be seen whether the 29-year-old will be allowed to leave Turf Moor.
