Huddersfield Town have signed Chelsea’s Izzy Brown on loan until the end of the season as confirmed by the club website.
The 19-year-old forward, who can play as a striker or a winger, spent the first half of the season loan at Rotherham United and his energy and pace was one of the few things that Miller fans were enjoying this season as they slumped to the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship. He scored three goals in 17 appearances while at the New York Stadium.
However Chelsea didn’t want Brown to stay at at club that were in the negative situation of battling against relegation and so terminated his loan in South Yorkshire. Now Brown will be playing just a few miles up the M1 after penning a deal with promotion chasing Huddersfield where he will stay until the end of the season, with Chelsea most likely allowing him to play in the Sky Bet play-offs should the West Yorkshire side make it.
After the signing, Huddersfield head coach David Wagner said: “Just like his teammate Kasey Palmer, Izzy is another big, big English talent and it is great that Chelsea was so keen to send him to us. Thanks to them for all their help in making this transfer happen so quickly.”
“He is a very exciting attacking player who can make things happen for us in the attacking areas and we are very excited to have join our squad for the rest of the season.”
“We have had a few injury problems in the wide positions, with Sean Scannell needing an operation and Joe Lolley only just returning from injury. Given this, bringing Izzy to the Club is an important January move for us.”
