On-loan Leeds midfielder Izzy Brown says he is desperate to get back into action after undergoing knee surgery earlier this year.

The 21-year-old Chelsea midfielder has yet to make an appearance for United since arriving on a season-long loan at the end of last month.

Brown is still recovering from a long-term knee injury and has not played since he picked up the injury playing for Brighton in January.

But Brown is making strides and spent time at Leeds Beckett University to take advantage of their medical testing equipment.

Brown told LUTV: “It’s gone really well here today; I’ve just been doing some hop tests and jump tests to see the strength in my right leg compared to my left. It’s great that they have these facilities here where injured players like myself can come and do tests that we might not necessarily be able to do at the training ground.

“After watching the lads during the matches I just want to get out onto the pitch and play but I know I’ve got to wait for my time and hopefully do everything right, get stronger everyday and be back before anyone knows it.”

Last week Marcelo Bielsa refused to put a time frame on the player’s return to action.

“It’s been a long time since he played, he hasn’t played football with us so far. It’s impossible to say when he will be fit. It won’t be a short time.”
