Leeds United have started the season in stunning form, establishing themselves as the early pacesetters in the Championship’s fight for promotion.
At the time of writing, the Peacocks have won four and drawn one of their opening five Championship matches and are widely regarded to be the leading contenders to lift the trophy after the gruelling campaign that lies ahead.
Marcelo Bielsa has worked wonders to assemble an exciting squad capable of ending Leeds’ long wait for a return to the Premier League and he continued his work right up until the end of the August loan deadline, swooping to bring Izzy Brown in on loan from Chelsea.
The 21-year-old becomes the third player to arrive from Stamford Bridge this summer, joining goalkeeper Jamal Blackman and midfielder Lewis Baker, with the arrival of Brown providing further depth to their front line.
After a deal was announced on Twitter, many Leeds fans took the opportunity to welcome the youngster to Elland Road. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
