Leeds United are in talks with Hamburg over a possible loan move for winger Crysencio Summerville.
The Lowdown: Summerville at Leeds
Do you think Leeds will sign a midfielder this month?
I'm not so sure now...
His impressive displays have earned him eight senior appearances under Marcelo Bielsa, but it seems as if he could follow in Cody Drameh’s footsteps in leaving in search of regular first-team football.
The Latest: Talks gathering pace
The player wants to feature more at senior level, with a long-term loan deal possibly on the cards.
Summerville is also wanted by sides in his native country, but a move to Germany with Hamburg is apparently on the cards before the month is out.
The Verdict: Not ideal
January was supposed to be a month where Victor Orta bolstered Bielsa’s squad for the second half of the season. However, should Summerville leave the club, Leeds could end up with fewer players than they started with.
Of course, both Drameh and Summerville weren’t first-team regulars, however, with the number of injuries Leeds have suffered this season and Bielsa’s small squad, every player is needed at Elland Road.
Key target Brenden Aaronson may not end up joining until the summer, so the club’s outgoing business at the end of the month could now be viewed as a gamble as Leeds look to ensure a third successive season of Premier League football.
