Premier League transfer snub for Crysencio Summerville emerges at Leeds United
Premier League clubs failed to bid for Crysencio Summerville in the summer due to concerns about the Leeds United winger’s consistency, according to the Football League Paper.
The newspaper reported on page eight of their print edition on Sunday (29 October) that Bournemouth, Burnely and Everton are all interested in signing the 21-year-old Dutch forward in the last transfer window.
However, it is understood that “rawness and inconsistency ultimately dissuaded any Premier League from lodging a concentre offer” while there were also concerns about his final product and decision-making.
Summerville, who has been hailed as an “exceptional talent” by Michael Owen, has now scored six goals and supplied four assists in 11 Championship appearances this season.

Concerns about final product and consistency?
Summerville is one of the hottest properties in the Championship right now due to how well he’s performed in front of goal this season.
On average, he’s been directly involved in a goal in almost every single one of his league appearances this term and he’s one of the biggest reasons why Leeds are zeroing in on Leicester and Ipswich in the two automatic promotion spots.
Summerville has bagged two braces in his last two starts, making it even more puzzling as to why Daniel Farke didn’t start the Dutch dazzler away at Stoke in the week.
Leeds lost that match with Summerville only playing for 20 minutes in the second half.
But in each of his last four league starts, he’s contributed to goals – five goals and three assists, to be precise.
That’s incredible form for a 21-year-old who Premier League clubs had doubts about buying in the summer.
Funnily, the three top-flight teams named are all struggling this term and could all be relegated to the Championship while Leeds and Summerville replace them.
