After a lengthy period out and a few minor setbacks, it looks all but confirmed now that Izzy Brown will be included in the squad today against Boro. Brown, 22, is yet to feature for Leeds this season, despite arriving in the summer from Chelsea on a loan deal.
He has been recovering from a cruciate ligament injury and receiving treatment at Leeds but it is not until recently that Leeds have begun to pay a portion of his wages.

And then last night, Andrea Radrizzani posted a screenshot of Patrick Bamford’s instagram story which appears to be part of Izzy’s initiation karaoke. With the words ‘your season starts tomorrow’.
Just how much Brown may feature tomorrow is still in question, however his utility as a forward, winger and attacking midfielder could be the fuel to the fire that Leeds need at the minute. Since Samu Saiz’s departure, Leeds have been all too reliant on Pablo Hernandez for attacking creativity and an extra option in this department can only be of support to the push for promotion at Elland Road.
We took a look at his credentials in further detail here.
