Chelsea midfielder, Danny Drinkwater, has labelled his career in Stamford Bridge as 'a shambles'.

Drinkwater joined The Blues from Leicester City for £35million four years ago but was reduced to only 23 appearances in all competitions (12 in the Premier League).

The 31-year-old who made his debut on loan for Reading during the defeat of Fulham on Saturday opened up on his Chelsea career and what the future hold for him.

“Can I paint a picture? No. It’s been a shambles,” Drinkwater told talkSPORT of his Chelsea career.

“It’s football, it’s never straight forward, it’s never simple. I’m just excited for the new challenges.

Drinkwater who is on his fourth loan spell away from Chelsea having had unsuccessful stints at Aston Villa, Burnley and Kasimpasa shared his excitement about the future.

“I need to [kick-start my career]. I’m more excited about this than I have been for a few years now, especially how my career’s panned out.

“Games, getting the enjoyment of football back, then going from there. A few have slid away, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve not played.

“I’m in the last year of my contract, so there’s more than just football riding on it. I’ve got other things.”

“I’m desperate for games, I know my position and I know it’s not what I’ve expected for 10 years. So I’ve got to make changes and I’m making the right steps.

“I’ve just got to keep in contact with the manager, trust each other and trust the team. Hopefully they trust me and we can build on that.”
