Town fans still want me – Brown

Huddersfield Town

Brighton star Izzy Brown will return to former loan club Huddersfield on Saturday and admits fans still want him to play for them.

The 20-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at the John Smith’s Stadium from Chelsea and played a full part as the Terriers gained promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history.

The Peterborough-born forward scored four goals from 15 Championship outings and established himself as a firm fans’ favourite during his spell in Yorkshire.

It was thought that he would move to the club on a permanent basis but negotiations fell though and he returned to Stamford Bridge before being shipped out to the Seagulls.

The England Under-20 ace has yet to score for Albion and Huddersfield fans will hope that it still the case at 5pm on Saturday.

He clearly enjoyed his spell with David Wagner and admits that the Town fans were desperate for him to stay longer than his five-month stint.

“All the fans are still tweeting me, saying come back, come back,” he told The Argus. “And after the play-off final I thought I was going to go back. But as the summer went on, things didn’t start to work out the way it was meant to be.

“They wanted me on a permanent and it wasn’t possible.”
