The Englishman will now return to Chelsea and undergo a surgery. He will be out of action for nearly 8-9 months as that is the minimum time required for the full recovery.
Izzy will remain at Chelsea until January 2019 before he is loaned out for the rest of the 2019/20 season.
Everyone at Silly Season wishes Izzy Brown a speedy recovery!
