Chelsea could send Izzy Brown out on loan before tonight's transfer deadline, according to The Mail.

Jose Mourinho will wait until Monday's training session is complete before deciding whether the 18-year-old can leave on a temporary basis. The Chelsea manager wants Brown to get more first team football but will only allow him to leave in the right club shows an interest.

Completing a deal today is an ambitious target with the window set to slam shut at 11pm tonight, but Stamford Bridge officials are clearly confident that there is enough interest in the young striker to get a deal done with just hours to spare.

First-team football

Brown was named on the bench for Chelsea's game against Manchester City on Saturday but did not take part in the 1-1 draw. It was his first involvement in a match day squad since October, when he was also an unused substitute in the Capital One Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town.

Chelsea signed the hot prospect from West Brom in 2013 shortly after he had made his Premier League debut for the Baggies. He is now considered one of the club's best young stars, but is behind the likes of Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy.

Mourinho knows there is little chance of Brown getting the first team football his ability warrants with a loan deal considered the best way to aid his development. However, no final decision will be made until training is complete.

Future international

Brown has broken into the England under-19 set up this season and has scored two goals in two caps thus far. Along with Dom Solanke and Lewis Baker, Mourinho believes Brown could break into the senior national squad in the coming years.

He told reporters in July: “My conscience is simple.

“If, in a few years, Baker, Brown and Solanke are not national team players, I should blame myself.

“They are part of a process the club started without me, during that period before I came back.
