Young Chelsea forward Charlie Brown has joined Belgian club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise on a loan deal for the remainder of the season according to reports by The Blues’ official website.

The 20-year-old hotshot is one of the most promising young forwards within the Chelsea academy system and is rated highly by the club.

Brown has been prolific for both the Chelsea Under-18 side and the Development Squad in recent seasons and it has been revealed that the player will now get his first taste of senior football with Belgian side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. The youngster has joined Les Unionistes, a club who are owned by Brighton & Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom, on a loan deal until the end of the season and Brown will play his football in Belgium’s second tier.

Brown joined Chelsea from Ipswich Town in 2016 and he has successfully made the jump into the Under-23s. The player is under contract at Stamford Bridge until next summer. The striker is yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea and will be keen to show manager Frank Lampard what he can do whilst gaining first team experience in Belgium.

The youngster will be in-line to make his debut for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise once he receives international clearance.
