Feyenoord attacker Crysencio Summerville is set to sign a three-year contract with Leeds United, according to AD journalist Mikos Gouka.

Writing on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday, the Dutch reporter said that Leeds have agreed a fee with Feyenoord and if Summerville, 19, passes a medical with the Whites, he’ll put pen to paper on a deal that runs until 2023.

Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath also offered an update on Leeds’ swoop for Summerville on Wednesday. He said that the fee agreed between the Whites and their Dutch counterparts is £1million and that the attacker will have a medical in the Netherlands before officially heading to Yorkshire next week.

It remains to be seen whether or not Summerville will be a part of Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team plans at Elland Road.

However, the Netherlands Under-19 international has enough senior experience on his CV to suggest he might be further along in his development that most of the Under-23s.

Summerville spent last season on loan at ADO Den Haag where he made 22 appearances in all competitions and scored five goals playing as both a winger and a striker.

He also spent the 2018/19 season on loan in the Dutch second-tier with FC Dordrecht.

Summerville is a versatile attacker who’s been described as “unpredictable and slippery in possession” by The Athletic journalist Dominic Fifield.

Bielsa likes to have plenty of wide players in his squad and Summerville may have been viewed as a younger and cheaper alternative to Rangers’ Ryan Kent, who Leeds tabled a bid for earlier in the transfer window.

In other Leeds United news, this 24-year-old is not in Bielsa’s plans for the upcoming season.
