Remember your summer vacations as a child? After a full year of intense studying (okay, just about enough to get over the line!) you finally had the opportunity to relax and maybe even visit your Grandmother for the time. Why was it so much fun? Because you would have the permission to do all the crazy things you have ever wanted to do. The things which were impossible to do while you were at home. Right? Well, a loan to Vitesse Arnhem for a Chelsea academy kid sort of feels the same way too.
Isaiah “Izzy” Brown is our 18-year-old academy superstar who worked hard with the youth team last year and helped them win the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League last season. Despite some stellar performances from the winger, he was unable to crack into the senior Chelsea side. Although, he did make his debut in our 3-0 loss against West Brom in May. But after a year of brilliant performances, the kid deserved more than a 20-minute cameo appearance on the biggest stage, right?
Well, according to ESPN FC:
“Chelsea starlet Isaiah Brown is set for a loan move to Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem. Mourinho feels the 18-year-old would be best served to go out on loan next season to play regularly and gain valuable first-team experience.”
That’s what I am talking about! Brown would finally have the licence to show his skills on the biggest stage and I, for one, is excited about him! In spite of his talents and potential, it was near impossible that he would break into this Chelsea starting eleven this year. That’s why a loan to our feeder club was always the best option where he would join his old mate Lewis Baker and probably our new Brazilian signing Nathan Allen.
As we all know, Brown’s primary position is the wings, but he is also capable of playing as a striker. With Bertrand Traore probably on his way to the Bridge, Brown would have a good opportunity to establish himself as a regular in Peter Bosz side. With Nathan beside him and Baker behind him, I guess Vitesse could be really exciting side to watch out next season!
