Deal done and officially announces as Chelsea wrap up another smart late deal!
Chelsea youngster Charlie Brown managed to secure a late deadline day loan move away from the club
Fans were fed a lot of transfer talk over the last few weeks as it seemed that Frank Lampard was going to do a whole load of business to improve the side and give the club more of a chance to get back inside the top four.
But despite all the speculation and rumours in the media, the boss failed to get any transfer business for first team players done, and instead the Blues secured a number of deals for the academy players instead.
Now, we have managed to secure a loan deal for the talented Brown, who has five goals in 18 appearances this season for our development squad side, as he is joining Belgian club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. It is his first loan.
Brown joined us from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2016 and enjoyed a prolific maiden season for the Under-18s, notching 10 goals in 20 league appearances, most of which were as a substitute. That form was rewarded with a development squad debut before the end of the campaign.
Last season Brown was topscorer across our Academy sides with 20 goals from 31 appearances. He signed a new contract in October 2018, committing him to Chelsea until the summer of 2021.
Royale Union Saint-Gilloise are based in Brussels and compete in the Belgian second division where they are currently fourth.
If he impresses enough over the next few months he may be able to earn a place in the side next season, and many fan will surely wish Brown the best of luck.
Now the game time that he should receive will put him In good stead for a possible slot.
