Leeds United made a number of big signings for the Under-23s this summer but one has been flying under the radar.

Winger Crysencio Summerville signed from Feyenoord and had been playing top-flight football for Den Haag before that.

His time at Leeds has been marred with injury and he’s only made two appearances in the Premier League 2 before today.

However, the winger was in absolutely explosive form today and was unlucky not to get a first-half hat-trick.

As it is, he scored two as the Leeds Under-23s powered to a 3-0 lead at half-time, showing the first-team where they went wrong.

Summerville finished off his hat-trick just before the end in a dominant 4-1 win for the Under-23s.

Summerville promised a lot when he signed and came with some big words from former players like Dirk Kuyt who said of him: “He is a great talent. He has developed so, so far. He has a fantastic passing movement.”

All of that was on show today and if Summerville can stay fit and keep up this level of display, he could be knocking on the first-team door before too long.

Unlike other players in the Under-23s he’s got that vital first-team experience behind him and that could see him fast-tracked into the senior squad.

Some Leeds fans already think he’s better than Helder Costa, who has been flopping with the first team over recent weeks.

Here are the best reactions to what was described as an “explosive” display from Summerville today…
