Danny Drinkwater says 'unknown is exciting' amid Chelsea exile but Simpson taunts 'wait til the paydays stop'

DANNY DRINKWATER admitted his days at Chelsea are numbered – but insisted the "unknown" is exciting.

The 30-year-old has made just 23 appearances across all competitions for the Blues since he joined for £35million in 2017.

Drinkwater has been urged to find himself a new club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

He is making the most of pre-season training with the Blues before he leaves the club.

The former Leicester City star posted a photograph of himself training to his Instagram page.

Alongside the image, he wrote: "Hmmm. 'Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional…'

"Back at @chelseafc only for pre-season.

"Working hard, trying to get fit and be in the best shape I can be for wherever I go next.

"As much as I would love to be settled at a club like I should be, the unknown is kinda exciting."

But Foxes star Danny Simpson was quick to troll his former team-mate on Instagram.

He wrote: "Lol lad wait until the paydays stop then it's pikachu."

Cesc Fabregas commented: "Good luck my man."
