Pundit 'huge fan' of Leeds ace Summerville loan exit after Rangers bid made
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Paul Robinson has backed the idea of Crysencio Summerville leaving Leeds United on loan for the rest of the season.
On Sunday, during ITV’s coverage of Leeds’ FA Cup loss at West Ham, commentator Seb Hutchison reported that Rangers and Blackburn have both made bids to sign Summerville, 20, on loan.
The former ADO Den Haag attacker has featured every now and then for Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team this season but Robinson has suggested he may be loaned out to get more regular minutes in senior football.
“I think playing in the Championship can play a huge part in his development,” Robinson told MOT Leeds News.
“I’m a huge fan of the loan system for players that age.
“When you get to a certain age and you train well, you get into the first team but you’re on the bench and you’re not quite getting game-time.
“I’m a huge advocate of players going out on loan and getting games – but it shouldn’t be to the detriment of your senior squad.
“Blackburn have had a fantastic season and there’s an opportunity there for promotion so if he went there, it would be a great experience.”
Summerville has played eight times for Leeds’ first-team this season with his most recent appearance coming as a substitute at the London Stadium on Sunday.
After coming off the bench, the Dutch ace impressed in his limited time on the pitch, something he’s done regularly for Bielsa.
Summerville isn’t the only Leeds player touted for a loan move away from Elland Road this month with Mirror journalist David Anderson reporting that Cody Drameh is set to undergo a medical with Cardiff.
In other Leeds United news, this senior ace is reportedly on his way out of Elland Road despite Bielsa’s wishes.
