DANNY DRINKWATER is open to a move to Saudi Arabia to get his career back on track.

Drinkwater won the Premier League with Leicester in 2016 but his move to Chelsea a season later proved a turning point.

The midfielder failed to hold down a regular spot in the Blues’ squad and he would go on loan four times before being released last summer.

Drinkwater is without a club but has not ruled out a reunion with N’Golo Kante, who left Chelsea for Al-Ittihad.

He told SportBible: “If I was to team up again with Kante, the team knows they’ve got a Premier League-winning formula there.

“If that’s something they are interested in then I’m game. I think bringing players like Benzema, Ronaldo and Kante to the country is massively attractive for other professionals as well.

“You want to test yourself. I’d be more than willing to listen to offers and have a look.

“I’m sure it would be a great experience. They are building towards something special.”

Drinkwater, 33, has opened up about the struggles he suffered off the field, including crashing his £125,000 Range Rover.

The footballer smashed the car into a wall in Chesire at 12.30 at night with two female passengers in the motor at the time.

Drinkwater was banned from driving for 20 months and ordered to do 70 hours of community service after admitting to drink-driving.

He said: “When you’ve got a young kid at the time as well, your perspective changes.

“I remember being sat in the prison cell afterwards. It was the morning I was supposed to pick my son up.

“I rarely got a morning, as well. In my head, I was thinking, ‘You’re an idiot. You’ve had a car crash after a night out and for what?’

“It hit me like a ton of bricks. I was like, ‘F*****g hell, you need to fix up really fast’. That was the biggest wake-up call ever.”

Before officially leaving Chelsea, Drinkwater wrote a statement apologising to fans for how his transfer played out.

He described it as a “business move gone wrong” and a “hugely disappointing” spell that was hampered by injuries and a lack of minutes.

A year on, Drinkwater is still without a club, having last played on loan with Reading only to be sent back.
