Leeds are main candidates to sign £1.3million attacker, club with no choice but to sell - report
Leeds United have signed a number of bright prospects this summer already and next on the list appears to be Feyenoord attacker Crysencio Summerville.
AD journalist Mikos Gouka shared on his personal Twitter account that the Whites are negotiating a move for the 18-year-old.

It was reported that Summerville is allowed to leave the Dutch club, and is open to moving abroad for more football.
Dutch outlet Voetbal have now claimed that Leeds are the “main candidates” to sign Summerville ahead of both Wolves and Rangers.
The fee that Victor Orta and the Whites will need to match is £1.3million (€1.5m), not much for a player that Feyenoord have no choice but to sell.
Feyenoord wanted to keep the 18-year-old, but Summerville no longer wanted to stay in the under-23s after tasting the Eredivisie last season.

Leeds have already spent £1million plus add-ons on Joseph Gelhardt, and up to £3million on Sam Greenwood – so this fee would fit in with their academy business.
Given that Marcelo Bielsa “sees a future” in Summerville, it would be no surprise to see him in-and-around the first-team in the near future after joining.
The 18-year-old got his first taste of senior action last season, making 21 appearances out on loan at ADO Den Haag.
Summerville only managed to score twice and deliver one assist, numbers that would need to increase significantly to make any sort of impact under Bielsa.
The electric winger has been compared to the likes of Jadon Sancho before, and those comparisons only see our opinion become more positive.
