Leeds United Managing Director Angus Kinnear has suggested in his matchday programme notes that Chelsea-owned youngster Izzy Brown will be back in action in January.

Brown, who is a very versatile footballer and can operate as an attacking midfielder, forward or winger, joined Leeds on loan from Premier League club Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old is on the sidelines at the moment, as the youngster is recovering from an ACL operation.


Leeds MD Kinnear has suggested in his matchday programme notes ahead of the Championship game against Brentford at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon that Brown - who earns £25,000 per week as salary, according to - will be fit and available in January.

Like a new signing

It was always a fact that Brown was not going to be fit for the start of the season, and it is encouraging for Leeds that the youngster will be fit for the second half of the season.

The 21-year-old will be like a new signing, and the attacker could give Less an extra push in their quest to finish in the top six of the Championship this season.
