Leeds United fans are excited by the prospect of Dutch winger Crysencio Summerville joining the Whites from Feyenoord with a deal reportedly progressing.

According to Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath on Wednesday, the Whites have agreed a £1million fee to sign the 18-year-old from Feyenoord and a medical is set to take place in the Netherlands.

After passing the medical, it is understood that Summerville will head to England to complete his move to Elland Road.

It’s hard to not get excited by the arrival of young Dutch players.

Pascal Struijk and new goalkeeper Dani van den Heuvel are already at the club and it seems Victor Orta’s scouting team are very pleased with what they have been digging up in the Netherlands.

Rotterdam-born Summerville is a product of a Feyenoord academy which has also welcomed the likes of Dutch legend Wim Jansen, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Robin van Persie Georginio Wijnaldum and Stefan de Vrij to the game.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Summerville will end up having the careers that they did, but it’s still very encouraging that Leeds are in for a player with that pedigree.

It also seems that supporters are drooling over the prospect of seeing such a speedy player joining their squad for the upcoming Premier League season.

Marcelo Bielsa likes to have plenty of wide options and, clearly, these fans are happy with the Argentine’s recruitment in that department with Summerville closing in on a £1million switch across the North Sea.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

There have been a couple of fans who’ve compared Summerville to Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.

We’re not saying that Summerville won’t get anywhere near as good as the England forward but he does share some similar straights as he is quick, good with the ball at his feet, is able to cut inside and has been described as “unpredictable and slippery in possession” by The Athletic journalist Dominic Fifield.

Keep an eye on Summerville in the next few years, Leeds fans.

In other Leeds United news, this 24-year-old is not in Bielsa’s plans for the upcoming season.
