View: Crysencio Summerville deserves Leeds United first-team after Premier League 2 performances

Leeds United have had a more than decent transfer window where they ended up bringing in as many as six first-team players.

As soon as the players arrived at Elland Road, there was always going to be a case of who leaves the senior side to make some space for the new additions.

One of the players who has ended up featuring more in Premier League 2 than in the top flight for the Whites was winger Crysencio Summerville.

One for the future

Leeds are famous for relying on their academy products to bring them success in recent seasons. Their academy products are one of the reasons why they made their way back to the top-flight in English football under Marcelo Bielsa.

That strategy has given greater opportunities for youngsters to prove their worth amongst the best in the business.

One of the players who definitely deserves more opportunities to showcase his talent at the highest level is Summerville.

The Dutchman was given his debut by the Argentine former manager but ever since Jesse Marsch came in, he has found it hard to get first-team minutes under his belt.

Therefore, he had to be dropped to Premier League 2 where he is bossing the league, with a goal and four assists in just two matches [Transfermarkt].

Those numbers prove that Summerville is a special talent and with Leeds already hit with injuries and in a season where the fixtures will be congested, it might not be a bad idea to give the 20-year-old a longer run in the senior team.
