Brighton snaps Chelsea forward

Chelsea youngster Izzy Brown has joined EPL newbies Brighton on a season-long loan after signing a four-year contract with the Premier League champions.

The 20-year-old has made only one substitute appearance in four years with the Blues. Brown has had loan spells with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, Rotherham and Huddersfield.

Delighted Chris

-The natural progression for Izzy, having enjoyed such a successful season in the Championship last season, was to step up to the Premier League - and we are delighted he will be doing that with us. He is a player with great potential and will bring a different dimension to our attacking options for the season ahead, alongside our existing strikers, said Brighton manager Chris Hughton.

He scored five goals for Huddersfield last season as they won promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.
