Leeds United are closing in on the capture of Izzy Brown from Chelsea, with the midfielder arriving in Leeds ahead of his move.
The Yorkshire Evening Post recently claimed that the Championship side are targeting cover for attacking midfielder Samu Saiz before the loan window shuts, while Goal.com stated that Brown is seeking a loan move away from Stamford Bridge in order to achieve more consistent game time.
The 21-year-old played for Leeds’ rivals Huddersfield in the second-half of the 2016/17 season, helping them earn promotion to the Premier League.
The former Rotherham loanee also spent time at Brighton on loan last season, but has been troubled by injuries in the last two years.
Now, both YEP reporter Phil Hay and Sky Sports News are confirming that Brown is in advanced talks over a move to Elland Road.
The player has reportedly been spotted at Leeds Bradford Airport, while Hay adds that the deal has “Been in the pipeline for a little while now”.
