'Not progressing' - Crysencio Summerville loan move to Hamburg stalling - report

Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville’s proposed loan move to Hamburg is stalling, with the German club facing competition from Holland, according to BILD.

Summerville has been linked with a loan move away from Elland Road this winter as he looks for more regular playing time [BILD], despite making eight first-team appearances this season.

Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t want the 20-year-old to leave the club as he is relying on him for depth, but that hasn’t stopped Hamburg making advances for the Dutch winger.

But according to BILD‘s information, a deal is ‘not progressing’ with the Bundesliga 2 side facing competition from sides in the Eredivisie in Holland for his signature.

Summerville has previously given his okay for the deal, but as the move begins to drag along it’s possible he could move elsewhere.

Race against time

It seems as though there is a bit of a tug of war happening between Leeds and Summerville, with the club not keen for him to leave but him desperate to play.

If he can go out on loan and get regular football, then it would be of great benefit to all parties involved.

However if Leeds are unable to bring anyone else in to make up the numbers in the squad, then they would be putting themselves at risk if they let him leave.

With the amount of injuries they’ve suffered this season, it would be remiss of them to allow Summerville to leave the club without having any sort of plan in place.

If a deal can be done that suits all parties then it would be great, but until then Leeds should absolutely look after themselves first and foremost.
