Leeds fans react to surprise move for Brown

Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to Thursday’s big transfer news, as Izzy Brown is set to sign on a one-year loan deal.

According to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Brown is set to make the switch from Chelsea before tomorrow’s deadline.

The young midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Brighton, has been a target “for a little while now”, according to Hay.

Brown suffered a serious knee injury in January, but has been back in training for the last couple of weeks.

The 21 year-old is seen as competition for Samuel Saiz, who has started the season in fantastic form, but his ability to play multiple positions in midfield will give Bielsa plenty of options.

Leeds fans have been desperate for some extra depth down the spine of the team, and while they are still lacking a centre back signing, Brown will allow Bielsa to rotate the midfield on a regular basis without a huge drop off in quality, which is essential given the high-tempo pressing style.

Loads of fans have been giving their verdict on the move, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
