Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater has been charged with drink-driving after being involved in a vehicle crash in Greater Manchester on Monday.

The incident reportedly took place in Greater Manchester where the former Leicester midfielder crashed his Range Rover after leaving a charity event. The collision flattened a fence and left debris on the road.

The 29-year-old and the woman accompanying him were both reportedly treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Chelsea admitted to being aware of the situation as they waited on updates.

It has now been confirmed that Drinkwater has been charged.

Mr Drinkwater, 29, of Nether Alderley in Cheshire, was released on unconditional bail to appear at Stockport Magistrates' Court on 13 May.

The England worldwide signed for the Stamford Bridge club after helping Leicester claim an historic Premier League title in the 2015-16 campaign.

This is the latest in a series of lows for Drinkwater, who hasn't played a competitive game for Chelsea in 13 months.

Drinkwater, who has earned three caps for England, has only appeared in the Community Shield for the Blues this season after making 22 appearances and scoring one goal in all competitions in 2017-18.

But, following a £35million move from the Foxes, he has been on the periphery at Chelsea and is not fancied by boss Maurizio Sarri.

A female passenger whom the player met that night was reportedly also in the auto at the time.

The crash happened just hours before Chelsea's 2-0 win over West Ham.
