Brown is expected to start for Wednesday against Walsall on Saturday as Garry Monk’s side head back into competitive action in the Carabao Cup, which will be the midfielder’s first outing since his final game for Luton Town back in July.

The 23-year-old missed the final five games of Luton’s successful Championship relegation battle due to injury, returning to his mother club, Chelsea, after suffering an Achilles problem, but still made sure he was around to celebrate with his Hatters teammates in the season finale.

Wednesday fought off competition from a host of other Championship clubs to land Brown on loan for 2020/21, and Luton’s boss, Nathan Jones, is full of praise for the midfield man who played his part in helping the club secure their second-tier status last time out.

Speaking to Luton Today, Jones gave some insight into the Chelsea youngster, saying, “No, in terms of Izzy, Izzy did fantastically well for the club, but we brought Jordan Clark in and that’s probably us done in terms of attacking players.

"I felt Izzy needed a new challenge and he’s got a new challenge and I really wish him the best… He's a great kid, it summed him up really that even though he was injured and went back, last game of the season he was in and around it, we had a little celebration after and Izzy was part of that.

"He did so well for the club, did well for me in terms of the cross for the goal to beat Swansea, contributed all over, so we really do wish him all the best.”

Brown, who looked lively in the Owls’ 0-0 friendly draw with Leicester City over the weekend, hasn’t scored since November last year as Luton beat Charlton 2-1, but will be eager to try and break that run as early as possible into his career at Hillsborough.
