Leeds confirm new signing on three-year deal, Whites share squad plans for winger
Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Crysencio Summerville from Feyenoord on Wednesday afternoon.
The 18-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at Elland Road, keeping him in West Yorkshire until the summer of 2023.
Summerville continues the summer trend of youngsters arriving, following Sam Greenwood, Joe Gelhardt and Cody Drameh through the door.
The young winger has been capped at numerous youth levels for Holland and arrives at Thorp Arch with a big reputation.
When confirming the signing on their website, Leeds shared that Summerville will link up with the under-23s and new manager Mark Jackson.
Jackson’s side started their season on Monday evening, losing 4-0 against Stoke despite dominating large periods of the game.
Summerville arrives with a great reputation and has been compared to Borussia Dortmund superstar Jadon Sancho previously.
That highlights his pace and how he has little fear when getting on the ball to take on his man with ease down either side.
Mike McGrath of the Telegraph last week reported that the Whites had agreed a £1million fee with the Dutch club for Summerville.
With Jordan Stevens set to seal a move to Swindon Town on loan in the near future, Summerville will have the perfect chance to prove himself with the under-23s this season with little competition.
Dirk Kuyt once tipped Summerville to break the transfer record at Feyenoord for money received, so to pick up the 18-year-old for only £1million could be a masterclass from the Whites.
