Leeds United have added another shrewd signing to their already fantastic portfolio of young talent, as Cysencio ‘Jimmy’ Summerville signs on at Elland Road on a three-year deal.

It was noticed earlier that Summerville arrived at Elland Road just minutes after Victor Orta walked through the doors at the East Stand. Then the curtains of the infamous ‘signing room’ were closed.

Summerville’s arrival in Leeds has been on the cards for several weeks, after being cast-out on loan last season following an incident of fighting in the Feyenoord dressing room.

The flying Dutchman is highly regarded in his native Netherlands, with the forward scoring six goals in five under-19 caps, while winning the under-17 European Championships.

Meanwhile, Summerville made his Eredivisie debut last season on loan at Ado Den Haag, scoring two and assisting three in 21 appearances (1488 minutes). The 18-year old is versatile, playing across the front-three while proving to be a dangerous attacker wherever he plays thanks to his technical ability and blistering pace.

Leeds are still pursuing Rodrigo De Paul meanwhile, who announced his desire to sign for The Whites on social media earlier this week.
