Chelsea’s Brown set for Brighton move

Chelsea’s Izzy Brown looks likely to join Premier League newcomers Brighton on a season-long loan.

Brown played on loan for Rotherham and Huddersfield in the Championship last term, helping the latter to promotion via the play-offs, with four goals in 18 appearances.

Huddersfield were keen to re-sign him but Brown has opted to continue his development at Brighton.

The England Under-20 international joined Chelsea from West Bromwich Albion in 2013 and is one of a number of Blues players to have loaned to Vitesse Arnhem, playing 22 times in the Dutch top flight in 2015-16.
