Feyenoord forward Crysencio Summerville has started following Leeds United on Instagram amid rumours that he is closing in on a switch to Elland Road.
Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath reported last week that Leeds have agreed a £1million deal to sign Summerville from Feyenoord and that his medical was scheduled to take place in the Netherlands before heading to West Yorkshire.
The Athletic’s Phil Hay added that the deal should be completed by the end of this week.
Now, it has become apparent that Summerville has followed Leeds on Instagram, which is a huge suggestion that he is heading towards Elland Road.
He also follows Neymar and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – but let’s not read too deeply into things.
It’s not the first time in this transfer window when hints have been dropped on social media with Rodrigo De Paul’s activity earlier this week sparking a frenzy on Twitter.
Dinamo Zagreb defender Josko Gvardiol also follows Leeds on Instagram amid speculation linking him with Elland Road and Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio broke the news about Rodrigo heading to the Whites after being spotted in a video with Andrea Radrizzani.
As social media plays more and more of an important role in our lives, it is pretty much expected that players’ online footprint is going to be tracked by fans and journalists as more often than not, they’re massive hints about their situation at certain clubs.
In this case, Summerville has followed Leeds ahead of what we expect to be him being officially announced as Leeds United’s newest player.
We cannot wait to see what the tricky forward is able to do at Elland Road after a successful loan spell at ADO Den Haag last season.
In other Leeds United news, Phil Hay claims the Whites have the budget to sign one of the top prospects in European football.
