Leeds United have confirmed the signing of teenager Crysencio Summerville from Dutch top-flight side Eredivisie – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have responded to express their delight over the deal.
The Whites confirmed on their official website on Wednesday afternoon that the 18-year-old has moved to Elland Road for an undisclosed fee and signed a three-year contract.
He will immediately join Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side and is another exciting young talent that Leeds have managed to snap up this summer.
Summerville is a youngster that Feyenoord have decided to let go this summer, but he’s someone with potential and he’s already has first-team experience in his career.
The rapid winger was loaned out to Eredivisie outfit last season, scoring two goals and supplying three assists in 23 appearances for the Dutch top-flight side.
He has represented Netherlands up to the Under-19 age group at international level and Sky Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio previously claimed on his website his deal could end up costing £900,000.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media are excited about the new addition they’ve made and feel he’s an upcoming star that could have a strong future with them.
Here are some Whites fans discussing their new signing:
Yup, good signing. Kid looks to have a lot of potential. Now go get Rodrigo De Paul please 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

very good signing from what i’ve see, heard he has a bit of an ego but a few murder ball sessions should humble him

Great to see further exciting additions to an Academy that previous and successive ownerships tried to destroy. Well done @andrearadri

He’ll be the winger we are after, him and Poveda as back up wingers, he’s certainly got pace,
