Times journalist expects Leeds to complete deal for contract rebel

Times journalist Gary Jacobs expects Leeds United to sign Dutch attacker Crysencio Summerville from Feyenoord.

Writing on The Times website, the reporter said that Summerville, 18, has refused to sign a new contract with Feyenoord and is now set to move on.

Summerville spent last season on loan at ADO Den Haag where he made 21 Eredivisie appearances, scored two goals and supplied three assists – one of which came against Ajax.

It now seems likely that Leeds will swoop in to sign the Netherlands Under-19 international, who has been likened to Jadon Sancho for the way he can get past defenders.

Marcelo Bielsa likes to have plenty of wide players in his squad and he also likes to have players who are versatile.

Summerville played primarily as a right-winger for ADO Den Haag last season but, according to transfermarkt, he also played a few games as a centre-forward.

It remains to be seen whether or not Summerville is going to be yet another addition to the ever-growing Under-23s squad at Thorp Arch or if he is seen as someone who will be on the propriety of the first-team.

Based on reports linking Leeds with Rangers star Ryan Kent, Summerville could be viewed as an option for the senior squad due to him having top-flight experience in the Netherlands and the fact he can play in multiple attacking roles like Kent.

There is a long time to go before the transfer window slams shut next month but it does seem as though Summerville will be someone who will head to Elland Road before it does close.

In other Leeds United news, the club has moved two players on without any formal announcement.
