Izzy Brown joined Chelsea as a 16-year-old in 2013 from West Brom and despite making just one first-team appearance at Chelsea since his move, Brown doesn’t regret joining Chelsea.
Brown is currently on loan with Championship club Huddersfield and he believes joining Chelsea in 2013 was the right call.
“I don’t regret the decision to leave. Maybe I would have had more Premier League games but everyone has a different pathway,” Brown told The Telegraph.
“The manager at the time [Steve Clarke] was sacked early the following season and I could easily have been bombed back into the Under-18s.
“People say leaving West Brom was all down to my family but it was all down to me. Being 16 and supporting Chelsea as a kid, when a team like that tells you they want you it’s hard for any teenager to say no.
“It’s all about timing, I’m still 20 and not too worried.”
