Leeds Uniteds Izzy Brown warms up during the Sky Bet Championship match between Middlesbrough and Leeds United at Riverside Stadium on February 9, 2019 in Middlesbrough, England.

Izzy Brown had a late chance to become a hero at Leeds United last night.

Having played just nine first team minutes all season, he came on for the final five minutes against Derby with the Whites chasing the game.

He had one chance, from a free-kick, which he fired over. It was probably asking too much of him.

 

Leeds lost the play-off semi-final 4-2, going out 4-3 to Derby on aggregate.

Brown's spell at Leeds is now over, bringing a close on a disappointing campaign on a personal level.

He arrived injured, which Leeds knew, but there was an expectation he would feature regularly in 2019.

Brown sent a message out on Twitter, saying that he has learned a lot this season and thanked fans for their support.

Brown's future is unclear, as its unlikely Chelsea have a role for him next season. He will most probably head out on loan again.

Leeds have an opportunity to try to bring him back next season, although it's unclear if Marcelo Bielsa would be keen.

There is a strong chance Leeds could be lining up against Brown in the Championship next season.
