Lots of Leeds United fans have been drawn to Twitter to voice their thoughts at a video to emerge of youngster Crysencio Summerville playing against Jong Ajax on Wednesday. 

The Leeds U23 side tasted defeat against the Dutch outfit in a 3-1 loss, which saw Summerville come on as a half-time substitute for Kalvin Phillips.

The Dutch 19-year-old made 12 appearances for Leeds U23s last season in the Premier League 2 Division Two where he was able to find the back of the net six times and provide six assists (via Transfermarkt).

And it appears his display against Jong Ajax impressed these Leeds fans, who flocked to Twitter to show their delight at the 19-year-old’s performance.

What exactly did these Leeds fans say?

“Get him in the first team”

“Another impressive display. Should have scored a couple!”
“I like it. I like it a lot.”
“He’s so direct. He reminds me of Sterling”
“Get him in the 1st team better than Poveda and Costa but that’s just my opinion…MOT”
“Very raw but a lot of potential to break through in time IMO”
“Looks so good”
“Much better Than Costa Who hasn’t got balls to get stuck in.”

The winger was awarded an 8/10 rating by Leeds Live for his display on Wednesday after proving a constant threat to the backline of the Dutch side.

In comparison, Helder Costa was given a 3/10 rating, which has left many Leeds fans demanding Summerville to be given a chance in Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team squad.
