Major Leeds starlet loan update ahead of deadline day
Leeds winger Crysencio Summerville’s proposed loan move to Hamburg has hit a ‘hiccup’ over his wages, according to the German outlet Kicker.
The exciting Dutch winger is set to leave Los Blancos on loan before Monday night’s deadline as he seeks regular first-team football.
Bundesliga 2 side Hamburg are thought to be leading the race for his signature, but Kicker now report that the deal has hit a “hiccup” over wages.
They say Hamburg cannot afford to pay Summerville’s full salary and they face competition from Dutch clubs for his signature.
Hamburg would also like to add an option to buy Summerville for next season as they look to replace their outgoing winger Faride Alidou.
If Summerville can’t move this winter, it would be a real shame for his career.
Right now, the young winger is clearly at a level where youth football is more of a disadvantage than an advantage, so regular minutes in the men’s game can only be a good thing.
It won’t come to Elland Road with so many senior players ahead of him, but there is a clear path for him to make a name for himself at the club going forward.
If he can leave for six months and play regularly to impress, there’s no reason he can’t return next year and push for a regular place in the Leeds squad.
Hopefully Hamburg, or someone else, can sort something out before Monday’s deadline or it looks like another six months are wasted.
