Leeds starlet Summerville praised by BBC pundit after Barnsley showing

Leeds wonderkid Crysencio Summerville has earned praise from BBC pundit Michael Killgallon after his performance against Barnsley on Wednesday night.

The Whites defeated the Tykes 3-1 in the Carabao Cup with a goal from Luis Sinisterra and a brace from Mateusz Klich sealing the win.

However, Summerville stole the show with his performance on the wing and Kilgallon was full of praise for the 20-year-old after the game.

Killgallon told BBC Radio Leeds: “Regarding getting at people and being positive, he did all that tonight.

“But just maybe his final pass needs to be tidied up a little bit, but he’s a young lad.

“Fair play to him, he hasn’t been out there that much, and he’s come out tonight and really put a show on for the fans tonight.”

The Summerville Show

The 20-year-old is one of the highest-rated prospects to come out of the Leeds academy and against Barnsley he showed why he has so much around him.

The Leeds number 10 was electric on the wing showcasing his pace, quick feet and flair on numerous occasions using the match.

The twinkle-toed winger has a great first touch, a burst of speed as well as the fact he relishes the task of taking on opposition defenders and leaving them in his wake.

With Brenden Aaronson and Jack Harrison playing so well at the moment it will be hard to dislodge the duo from one of the starting wing spots.

However, he staked a claim for more first-team opportunities with his league cup performance and reminded everyone why the club think so highly of him.

He will be hoping for more opportunities like the one against Barnsley to showcase his talent and gain valuable first-team experience.

In other Leeds news, the club are reportedly in talks to sign Rory Mahady.
