Leeds United star Crysencio Summerville has no interest in leaving Elland Road this January, with multiple clubs watching the player this season.
After attracting major interest in the summer from big European clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Summerville’s incredible start to the season has attracted more suitors recently.
The 22-year old has 12 goals and six assists in the Championship so far. The Whites are currently in fourth place in the league, seven points off an automatic promotion place.
Summerville joined Leeds United in 2021 as part of the club’s policy of recruiting high potential youngsters under Victor Orta.
The Dutch youngster burst onto the scene with Leeds United in the 2022/23 season in the Premier League and has not looked back since.
Summerville famously scored a winning goal at Anfield after coming off the bench to hand Liverpool a rare home defeat.
Who is interested ?
According to the report from TEAMTalk, Newcastle are looking at signing the player. Eddie Howe is looking for more attacking options after the club’s campaign stuttered in recent weeks – exiting the League Cup, Champions League and dropping down to midtable in the Premier League all in the space of a month.
The Magpies’ attack has not been as sharp as previously this season, with players struggling for goals and form since the festive period. Newcastle have won just one game in their last seven.
Summer signing Harvey Barnes, who was expected to provide depth in attack has also been out with a long term injury.
Summerville is making the right choice
Staying at Leeds United in January may be the smartest move for Summerville. It puts his focus on securing promotion to the Premier League. The youngster is already a Premier League caliber player so that’s a stage he deserves to play, and hopefully he will lead his club there.
A player who knuckled down, shut out the noise earlier this summer is delivering one of the best seasons by any Leeds United player in recent years. I believe he will stay and finish the campaign.
Staying and earning promotion to the Premier League also boosts the player’s value if he ever wants to leave the club. Joining Newcastle in January, with the club out of all possible competitions and trophies, would be a waste of time.
