The German side are in talks to sign the £1.3m Leeds star, the club want a player beyond the summer


The German newspaper Bild claims Leeds are in talks with Bundesliga second division side Hamburg over a move for Crysencio Summerville. Hamburg want a player ‘beyond the summer’, suggesting a permanent deal.

Summerville, 20, has had eight senior appearances for Leeds this season as Marcelo Bielsa continues to have faith in his young stars. But Bild claims the Dutch prodigy is frustrated with his lack of playing time.

This sparked interest from Hamburg – and many clubs in his home country. Summerville has entered the final 18 months of the contract he signed following his £1.3million (Sun) pass on the Dutch side Feyenoord.

Bild claim that Leeds and Hamburg are in talks for Summerville. Hamburg are believed to be keen on a long-term signing – suggesting a long-term loan deal or a permanent move. They say Summerville likes to move.

Hamburg eyes Summerville: Leeds talent could benefit from move

Hamburg sit fifth in the German second tier and are definitely on the hunt for promotion. A move to Hamburg massively improves Summerville’s game-time chances – but of course they might not increase.

Either way, it would see Summerville join a massive club in German football who will eventually earn promotion – given the club’s finances compared to their rivals. Or else it will attract attention by playing regularly.

German football could suit Summerville, which relies heavily on high-paced, attacking football. It will be interesting to see if Leeds allow him to leave permanently or extend his contract before a loan.
