According to the Daily Mail, the England international has failed to impress Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

European clubs can buy players on a permanent deal until the end of August, while Football League sides can make loan signings up until that date.

Schalke had reportedly been on bringing Drinwkater to the Bundesliga, but sporting director Christian Heidel has deemed Premier League players are too expensive.

Other players that could be on the move on loan before the end of the window include Yannick Bolasie – who has been linked with a switch to Middlesbrough.
