Hamburg want to sign Leeds United ace Summerville on loan-to-buy as soon as possible

Hamburg are keen to sign Crysencio Summerville “as soon as possible” from Leeds United, according to Hamburger Morgenpost.

The German newspaper reports on their website that the 2.Bundesliga club wants the 20-year-old winger on a loan-to-buy deal.

It is understood that he’s Hamburg’s “dream player” and even wanted him back in the summer transfer window.

While the “negotiating partners know each other well”, Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly stopping Summerville from going.

Will it, won’t it?

Summerville has been linked with a move to Hamburg for a few days now but the caveat of every single story is that Bielsa wants him to stay.

If Bielsa says he’s going nowhere, then he’s going nowhere.

We don’t fully understand that approach.

Leeds have an abundance of wingers and Summerville hasn’t even made Bielsa’s last two matchday squads in the Premier League.

Plus, the former Feyenoord winger is one of Leeds’ top prospects and in the long-term, it can only be a benefit for him to get loaned out to a club who’ll play him every week.

Hamburg seem to be very keen on Summerville and from what we’ve seen of the Dutchman in his eight senior appearances for Leeds this season, he’s someone who could really help their attack.

However, we should not be agreeing any permanent clauses in a loan deal and Summerville should only be allowed to go out temporarily – if he is allowed to go.

With four days left of the January transfer window, Leeds seem as though they have a fair bit of business to do.

Summerville seems the most likely to leave right now but still, it’s on a knife-edge.

In other Leeds United news, a legal issue could derail the Whites’ hopes of a last-ditch January transfer.
