Leeds United Star Makes Decision On Future

Leeds United star Crysencio Summerville will resist the temptation to push for a Premier League move this month, according to Football Insider.

The 22-year-old has been in sensational form this season, scoring 12 goals in 23 Championship appearances. As the Whites’ top goalscorer, his contributions have helped Daniel Farke’s team surge up the table following a poor start to the campaign as they target an immediate return to the Premier League.

It’s no secret that the winger has caught the eye of a number of top tier teams, and it was reported last week that Newcastle United are set to push forward with their interest this month. With Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion also keen, Leeds will reportedly reject any advances as they see the former Feyenoord youngster as pivotal to their promotion aspirations.

Having arrived at Elland Road in 2020, he broke into the team last season as the Yorkshire outfit were relegated, but it is arguably this season which has proved to be his breakthrough campaign. He was on the scoresheet last weekend in the 3-0 win over Birmingham City, a result which ended Wayne Rooney’s rein at the Blues.

According to Football Insider, Summerville is enjoying life at the club and ‘is in no rush’ to move on to pastures new. The report also reiterates that Leeds will reject any advances, regardless of the offer at hand. However, it is claimed that the winger may rethink his plans in the summer should promotion fail to come to fruition, with a move to the Premier League or Europe both being considered.

Summerville was an unused substitute in this afternoon’s 3-0 win over League One title-chasers Peterborough United in what was a rare rest for the attacker. He is likely to be back in the squad next weekend when Leeds visit Cardiff City

Whilst a sale was never really on the cards this month, this news will be a relief to both Daniel Farke and Leeds United fans alike. They faced a summer of uncertainty following their relegation, with a number of players targeted by Premier League clubs, which ultimately disrupted their start to the campaign.

The end of the summer transfer window coincided with a change in fortunes and gave the manager the opportunity to settle his squad. The last thing they would have needed this month was public interest in Summerville and a scenario similar to that witnessed with Wilfried Gnonto in August, when the Italian youngster attempted to force a transfer.
