Leeds United have reportedly rejected an initial bid from PSV Eindhoven for winger Crysencio Summerville, according to Football League World.
The offer is likely to be the first of many for the young Dutch star during the summer, as speculation rages surrounding his future at Elland Road.
Premier League club Aston Villa, as well as Bundesliga outfits Red Bull Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are the clubs most commonly linked to Summerville, alongside PSV.
Now, the Eredivisie club have allegedly confirmed their interest with a concrete bid of “around £10m” for the Dutchman’s services, an approach which has been rejected by the Whites.
It is believed that the West Yorkshire club are “holding out” for a bigger fee for Summerville, which is hardly surprising considering the breakout season that the 21-year-old has enjoyed at Leeds this year.
Producing 4 goals and 2 assists in 12 starts for the Whites this season, moments such as Summerville’s last-minute winner against Liverpool at Anfield will live long in the memories of the Elland Road faithful.
Quick, skilful, and unafraid of taking on opposition defenders – to sign the Dutch starlet for £10m would be a steal for PSV.
Summerville is just one of many Leeds players who will be subject to interest from elsewhere this summer, as an exodus of the West Yorkshire side’s top talent is expected.
To manage to keep hold of key figures like Summerville this summer would be a real statement of intent from Leeds following the terms of their takeover by 49ers Enterprises being agreed last week – as doing so would go a long way towards helping the club bounce straight back into the Premier League following their relegation this year.
