According to Daily Mail, Stoke City are interested in a loan deal for Chelsea forward Izzy Brown.

Brown spent an injury-hit season at Leeds last term, playing just 11 minutes of their run to the Championship play-off semi-finals.

Brown has hardly played football for the last 18 months after he suffered an ACL in January 2018 while on loan at Brighton.

However, he had impressed in a previous loan spell at Huddersfield, helping the Terriers to win promotion to the Premier League in May 2017.

With Brown having struggled to play due to injury for the last 18 months, the Blues are reportedly happy to let him leave the club on loan.

Championship side Stoke are apparently looking for more attacking firepower after averaging less than a goal per game last season and they believe Brown will give them the boost they need in attack as he did Huddersfield in 2016-17, when he helped them achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Stoke have a good relationship with Chelsea after taking Victor Moses, Marco van Ginkel and Kurt Zouma on loan in the past.

Brown joined Chelsea for preseason under Frank Lampard and featured in the 1-1 draw against Bohemians in Ireland before he left the squad for London to prepare for a loan move.
