16 september 2020 – Feyenoord has said goodbye to Crysencio Summerville (18). The attacker was presented at Leeds United on Wednesday afternoon, where he will play in the O23 team. The eighteen-year-old winger signs a contract with the Premier League club until 2023. Reportedly, the people of Rotterdam receive one million euros.
Leeds United and Feyenoord have since confirmed the news. By the way, Feyenoord would have preferred to keep the talent, as stated again in the press release. Summerville had an expiring contract in De Kuip. The club has been trying for a long time to make a new alliance with him. However, the player indicated that he did not want to accept the offer, so that a departure is the solution for both parties, ‘writes Feyenoord.
The club also seemed to be on the way to a new contract for the winger, who would have wanted to rent it out once and then give it a chance in De Kuip. Due to the interest of, among others, Leeds United, a new agreement was ultimately not made, so that a transfer was the best solution for all parties.
In addition to Leeds United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, RSC Anderlecht, Rangers and Red Bull Salzburg were also reportedly interested in the youth international, which ultimately did not play any official game in Feyenoord 1. He did make an impression on a rental basis from ADO Den Haag last season.
