Leeds United have agreed a £1million fee to sign Feyenoord winger Crysencio Summerville, according to Mike McGrath.
The Telegraph journalist reported on his personal Twitter account that the 18-year-old can complete his medical in Holland before coming to the United Kingdom.

It is suggested that Summerville will complete his medical soon and then complete his move to Elland Road next week.
The 18-year-old had rejected a new contract offer from Feyenoord recently, after refusing to complete another season in their academy.
Summerville had tasted senior action during his loan spell with ADO Den Haag, although he may have to get used to Thorp Arch more than Elland Road at Leeds initially.
Voetbal had reported that the Whites were always the main candidates to sign Summerville, with Wolves and Rangers also taking an interest.
The Dutch outlet did suggest that the initial fee would be around £1.3million (€1.5m) though, so it appears that Victor Orta has negotiated that lower.
What type of player is Summerville?
The young winger has played at international youth level for Holland throughout his short career and has pace on and off the ball.
He has been likened to Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund before, for his attitude for getting on the ball and beating his man with ease – not a bad comparison to have.
In his first full senior season, he did only deliver one assist though – numbers which don’t exactly spring off the page for a winger who likes to beat his man and deliver a cross, maybe that is an area that needs to improve.
Where better to improve than Leeds though? Marcelo Bielsa has clearly seen something he likes, and with some minor adjustments, we could be getting a real treat on the cheap.
