Izzy Brown made his Chelsea debut in May, but the young forward looks set to spend the 2015/16 season on loan, where he'll gain valuable experience before trying to earn a regular place in the Chelsea squad. Most had assumed Brown, who is English, would spend the season on loan domestically, but reports on Tuesday are suggesting that he may join several Chelsea teammates this season at Vitesse Arnhem, in the Netherlands.

At the moment, the only Chelsea player who has completed his move to Vitesse is Lewis Baker, who also saw some time with the Chelsea first team. It sounds as in Nathan will be confirmed very shortly as well, though, and I'd be surprised if Chelsea's loan contingent is limited to just three players, given the amount of talent coming through the academy, and the youngsters the Blues are signing that won't qualify for a work permit.

The Eredivisie side have already begun training ahead of the new season, though new signings would still have over a month to settle with the group before the season officially gets underway.
