Leeds United look to have signed a pretty interesting character.
The Premier League new boys have made another addition to their Under-23 squad this afternoon.
Earlier today, Leeds announced the capture of Feyenoord talent Crysencio Summerville on a permanent contract, signing a three-year deal in West Yorkshire.
According to AD in the Netherlands, the 18-year-old winger was refusing to sign a new deal with the Eredivisie club and Frank Arnesen sanctioned his departure to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.
Less than two years ago, Summerville was slapped with a hefty fine and suspended by Feyenoord following a ‘strong scuffle’ with team-mate Mats Knoester at the club’s training ground [Tellerreport].
And some fans of the Dutch club have reacted in Leeds’ official announcement thread on Twitter, with some admitting they’re sad to see him go, while others seem happy to be shot of the teen.
The youngster never made a competitive appearance for the Dutch outfit’s senior side, but impressed during a season-long loan with Ado Den Haag in the top flight last term.
It’ll be fascinating to see how he fares with the Whites’ reserves this season.
This time last year, his compatriot Pascal Struijk was an Under-23 player, but the big defender made his Premier League debut in a 4-3 defeat away to champions Liverpool this past weekend, so a year can make a big, big difference.
