It’s okay, nobody panic.

Carlos Corberan gave an update yesterday after Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown was withdrawn from the U23s 2-0 loss to Barnsley FC.

Corberan said, “Izzy Brown was withdrawn as a precaution. He felt his hamstring was a little bit tight and we didn’t want to take any risks- his knee is fine.”

With the departure of Samu Saiz, Izzy Brown may be asked to play a significant role in the upcoming months as Leeds push towards promotion. Of course, Leeds still have an opportunity to grab another player or two in the January transfer window, but we’ll see what will happen.

On to the links.
