Leeds set to snap-up Feyenoord winger Crysencio Summerville, 18, in £1.3m transfer with talks progressing

LEEDS are set to sign 18-year-old winger Crysencio Summerville from Feyenoord for £1.3million, according to reports.

The Dutch teenager is one of Holland's brightest young stars and performed well in last season's Eredivisie on loan with ADO Den Haag.

He scored twice and bagged three assists for ex-West Ham manager Alan Pardew's men before returning to Feyenoord at the end of the campaign.

And the speed merchant could now be given a chance in England, according to Sky.

Summerville has entered the final year of his Feyenoord contract which will see Marcelo Bielsa's side bag a bargain.

He is considered a little lightweight in Holland but Feyenoord fans will be sad to see the lightning fast speed merchant leave.

If Summerville makes the switch to Elland Road, he could be competing for a place in the side with German star Julian Draxler.

Leeds are reportedly plotting an audacious move for the 26-year-old and are said to have already made contact.

Draxler currently earns £120,000-a-week at Paris Saint-Germain and it seems he would have to lower those demands if he were to join a new club.

Bielsa could utilise a drastic new look with his starting XI for the Whites' Premier League opener at Liverpool on Saturday.

The Whites made goalkeeper Illan Meslier's loan move permanent earlier in the window and he will start in goal.

Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher has been linked with a loan move to Elland Road and could lineup alongside Mateusz Klich in the middle of the park.

And left winger Jack Harrison has been signed on yet another season-long loan from Manchester City.
