news Fri 10 Jul 2015
Chelsea Football Club has agreed terms with Vitesse Arnhem for Izzy Brown and Nathan to spend the 2015/16 season on loan at the Dutch club.
Brown, 18, who can play out wide or as a central striker, enjoyed an impressive 2014/15 campaign.
As well as captaining our Under-19s to UEFA Youth League glory in April and scoring a brace in the final against Shakhtar Donetsk, he was also part of the Under-18 team which lifted the FA Youth Cup, netting in the second leg of our final win over Manchester City.
Having been elevated into the first team squad by Jose Mourinho in February, Brown was handed his Chelsea debut in the penultimate game of last season.
Brown will be joined at Vitesse for the coming season by Nathan, after the Brazilian completed his move to Stamford Bridge from Atletico Paranaense on 1 July.
Nathan, an attacking midfielder, has represented Brazil at Under-17 and Under-20 level.
