Brighton complete loan deal for Chelsea’s Izzy Brown
Chelsea striker Izzy Brown has joined Brighton & Hove Albion on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old has also signed a new four-year contract with the Blues.
Brown scored four goals in 15 appearances last season as he helped Huddersfield Town get promoted to the Premier League.
“The natural progression for Izzy, having enjoyed such a successful season in the Championship last season, was to step up to the Premier League – and we are delighted he will be doing that with us, here at Brighton,” manager Chris Hughton said.
“He is a player with great potential and will bring a different dimension to our attacking options for the season ahead, alongside our existing strikers.”
The England under-20 international has also spent time on loan at Vitesse Arnhem and Rotherham United.
