Talks about Drinkwater’s future are said to have taken place on Tuesday and Villa may now consider cutting short his loan spell — his second of the season after a miserable stint at Burnley.
Drinkwater faces disciplinary action from Villa, including a hefty fine.
He has made just four appearances since joining in January and did not play in Monday’s 4-0 thumping at Leicester.
Drinkwater only managed one Premier League start at Burnley, where his spell was marred after he was involved in a drunken fight in Manchester.
The brawl left him with bruising on his face.

He was called up to multiple England squads while still with the Foxes, but since joining Chelsea he has struggled for game time.
A £35million signing for the Blues in 2017, Drinkwater – who is on wages of around £120,000 a week – drinkwater has played just 17 Premier League games in three seasons.
