Dean Jones has offered his verdict on Crysencio Summerville’s future at Leeds United, suggesting he expects the winger to remain at Elland Road for the remainder of the season.

The Dutch player marked his 11th Championship goal of the season during Leeds United’s 1-1 draw with Coventry City on Saturday, December 16. Despite the impressive performance, there has been ongoing speculation about his future as the January transfer window approaches.

According to Fabrizio Romano, numerous clubs are closely monitoring Summerville’s situation in anticipation of the upcoming transfer window (Daily Briefing, 2 November). However, journalist Jones expresses a belief that the player is likely to remain with Leeds beyond January.

In a statement quoted by Give Me Sport on December 16, Jones stated, “My hunch is that he stays for the rest of this season because I think you can start to sense that this could be a good moment for Leeds, and his goal involvement since October has been outstanding.”

Jones further highlighted the player’s current form, stating, “I think he’ll be feeling unstoppable too at the moment, which sometimes you wonder if that’s something you want to try and hold on to because if you can get to the end of the season in that good form, you might get even bigger opportunities to come if you are to look for a transfer.”

He concluded with optimism for Leeds, stating, “Or you might even be looking at playing in the Premier League with Leeds again. Let’s wait and see, but I think Leeds will be okay for the time being.”

Good news

When a player like Summerville is delivering standout performances at a club with such a significant presence in English football, such as Leeds United, it’s only natural that top-tier teams would take notice and express interest in acquiring him.

From the beginning of October, Summerville has consistently ranked among the best players in the Championship, if not the absolute best. Premier League and other high-level teams will undoubtedly be keen on securing his services when the transfer window reopens. However, the assurance of regular playing time at Elland Road and the potential return to the Premier League next season, especially if Daniel Farke successfully guides Leeds to promotion, should be compelling enough to keep the Dutch player in Yorkshire, at least until the conclusion of the current season.

Losing the 22-year-old in the midst of the campaign would significantly impact Leeds’ chances of securing automatic promotion. It’s likely that everyone associated with Elland Road will be diligently working to reject any interest that arises when January arrives.
