A source told reporters:
“Danny had been celebrating a friend’s birthday and by his own admission got
“He knows he has let himself down big time. He was extremely drunk and to be honest doesn’t remember much of the incident. His mate had to fill him in the next day.
“Danny repeatedly tried to chat up a stunning girl in the club and wouldn’t leave her alone.
“He tried it on a few times before she told him to shut up by saying she was there with her boyfriend. He confronted Danny in the club, and punches were thrown.
“Both men were kicked out, and whilst Danny was outside things turned really ugly.
“Some other lads really started on him.
After a series of verbal exchanges they knocked him to the ground. He was
then hit with an object about the face and body. They were raining blows on him and jumping on his ankle.
“Danny is absolutely mortified now and realises he can no longer put himself in a position where these incidents happen, regardless of who is at fault.
“He had been focused on performing for Burnley and understands people will now question this. He is devastated. His injuries were significant. He looks a total mess.”
