The striker has signed a three-year professional deal which will run until the summer of 2026.

Brown also impressed whilst training with the first team squad and was named on the bench for the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round tie at home to Premier League side West Ham United in January of this year.

He also featured in first team squad over the course of pre-season ahead of the upcoming 2023/24 season and, as well as playing in several matches, he travelled with Paul Warne’s squad for their week-long training camp in Spain.
