Sheffield news Forgotten man Reece Brown faces uncertain future after retained list confirmed PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Reece Brown has spent the last season and a half out on loan at Peterborough United, but the Posh will look elsewhere this summer after their promotion to the Championship
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! When looking through the fans’ reaction to the Terriers’ retained list we noticed quite a few people asking about the future of midfielder Reece Brown. The midfielder has spent the last season and a half out on loan at Peterborough United, and the reason he was not included on the retained list is very simple: he is still under contract at Huddersfield Town until summer 2022. But ‘what about Reece Brown?’ is a good question to ask nonetheless. Once a bit of a wonderkid at Birmingham City, the creative midfielder was signed in summer 2019 following Town’s relegation from the Premier League having seemingly put his reported attitude problems behind him during a positive spell at Forest Green Rovers.

Karlan Grant was signed from League One Charlton and sold at a £14m profit. Josh Koroma arrived from non-league Leyton Orient around the same time as Brown; he’s been top scorer this season and is one of the leading contenders for this year’s player of the year award. Harry Toffolo has consistently been one of the Terriers’ best players since arriving from League One Lincoln City.

. Reece Brown is very much the odd one out in that regard. After a couple of eye-catching performances in pre-season under Jan Siewert, he made just one competitive appearance – in the League Cup defeat to Lincoln – and was only included in a single Championship matchday squad before being shipped off the Peterborough on loan in January.
Brown came back for pre-season under Carlos Corberan last summer, but again the decision was taken to send him out to London Road, where he has been a regular this season as he helped them in their successful promotion campaign. Peterborough’s director of football Barry Fry was pretty unequivocal that he will not be back with them next season, though, telling Peterborough Today: “Reece has been brilliant for us, but we think we can do better for the money.” Fry also indicated that Town offered to swap Brown for striker Mohamed Eisa in the January transfer window as part of their frantic search for a new centre forward, which eventually resulting in the free agent signings of Yaya Sanogo and Oumar Niasse. With one year still left on his contract at the John Smith's Stadium, that all leaves Brown facing an uncertain future once again. Town do need a creative midfielder capable of playing that killer final pass, but the fact a newly-promoted side don’t think he is worth keeping around, it does not speak highly of his prospects of breaking into the Terriers first team anytime soon.
