Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls Leeds United have completed the loan signing of Chelsea midfielder Izzy Brown for the remainder of the season according to The Blues’ official website.

The 21-year-old Peterborough-born midfield ace is well down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge but has the potential to become a top player.

It has been reported that Brown has agreed to link up with second tier club Leeds United for the entire 2018/2019 campaign. The Whites currently top the Sky Bet Championship table after five matches and hopes are high that the club can end their long wait for a return to the top flight with promotion this season.

Midfielder Brown started his career with West Bromwich Albion before joining Chelsea in summer 2013. Since moving to Stamford Bridge, the player has won the FA Youth Cup on two occasions while he has also won the UEFA Youth League and Under-21 Premier League.

Brown has made one senior appearance for The Blues with that solitary outing coming more than three years ago.

The player has since spent a season on loan at Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem before the 2016/2017 campaign saw him spend time with both Rotherham United and Huddersfield Town, he won the Sky Bet Championship play-offs with the latter.

Last season saw Brown made 15 appearances for Brighton & Hove Albion during a season-long loan spell at the Amex Stadium and he will again spend time away from parent club Chelsea this term.
