Chelsea fans express mixed emotions as Izzy Brown secures Leeds loan
Izzy Brown yesterday secured his fifth loan move away from Chelsea as he joined Leeds United until the end of the season.
Having signed for Chelsea in 2013, Brown has spent time on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, Rotherham, Huddersfield and Brighton.
Brown is still recovering from tearing his ACL last season at Brighton and will be eased back into football.
Still only 21, Brown will be hoping to impress under Marcelo Bielsa, as Leeds look to continue their rampant start to the season.
And the former England youth player will be linking up with some familiar faces in Yorkshire.
Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman are already on loan at Leeds, while former Blue Patrick Bamford is also part of Bielsa’s team.
A versatile player, Brown will be looking to slot into any of the attacking positions in Leeds’ side when fit.
But Leeds have made an excellent start to the season, so it will be tough for Brown to force his way into Bielsa’s plans.
Here is what Chelsea fans have been saying about Brown’s loan to Leeds:

Not sure about this. Doesn't seem like Baker and Blackman are getting much playing time under Bielsa, not sure if Izzy will, especially after the serious injury he had. We will see.

Goodluck to @izzyjaybrown who has joined Leeds on loan until the end of the season.
Really hoping Bielsa can get the best out of him, really classy player and been set back by injuries the last few years.
