He is surplus to requirements at the club and the Blues are looking to send him out on loan.

Drinkwater has plenty of Premier League experience and would seamlessly fit into the first team squad at both the clubs. Also, signing him on loan makes it a risk-free business, but both Everton and West Ham could reap benefits from him if he recaptures his previous form.
