Leeds United are continuing to hoover up the best young talent in Europe and their next target is 18-year-old Feyenoord forward Crysencio Summerville.
AD journalist Mikos Gouka posted an update on his Twitter account that said Summerville was being allowed to leave this summer and “can go to Leeds United”.
The tweet translates: “Crysencio Summerville can go to Leeds United. The attacker is allowed to leave Feyenoord and the English club from the Premier League is negotiating with Feyenoord about the transfer fee for the 18-year-old player.”
Crysencio Summerville kan naar Leeds United. Aanvaller mag weg bij Feyenoord en Engelse club uit de Premier League onderhandelt met Feyenoord over de transfersom voor de 18-jarige speler. #Feyenoord

Future is bright
Summerville is a Dutch Under-19 international and is valued at £1.35m according to Transfermarkt.
He’s come up through their youth ranks and has already played in the Eredivisie with Den Haag on loan.
He made 21 appearances for them in the 19/20 season and scored twice, playing up front and on the right wing.
He’s turned heads for the Dutch Under-19 side where he’s scored six goals in five games, including four in one game against the Latvia Under-19s.
It sounds like this is just a matter of agreeing a fee and Leeds are spending a lot on young players.
They’ve already signed Joe Gelhardt, Cody Drameh and Sam Greenwood for significant fees and Summerville would be another promising attacker.
He’s been described as a “wonderkid” by the Scottish Sun after he was linked with a move to Rangers last year. They claimed Anderlecht and Red Bull Salzburg were also interested.
Summerville is out of contract this summer and it means the fee could be a bargain one.
