Evening Standard journalist Simon Johnson has stated that the English winger will not be joining Southampton this summer.
Southampton were one of the teams that was supposedly interested in the Chelsea youngster but Simon Johnson’s thoughts would suggest that Brown will not be making a move to St Mary’s this summer
Chelsea winger Izzy Brown has been on loan to a few clubs to give him experience and it looks like he will be loaned out again, but this time to one of the other Premier League teams on the south-coast; Brighton. Brown was on loan at Huddersfield Town last season and helped them get promoted to England’s top flight, so Brighton do know who their buying.
Southampton have yet again lost out on one of their ‘summer targets’, which seems to be a regular occurrence this summer. I think fans need to relax and wait for a reliable source to mention a signing before they get hyped up about it.
