Leeds United fans have been reacting to footage that has emerged of Dutch midfielder Crysencio Summerville over the weekend.

The side put in a rather dominating display as they continued their pre-season work with a comfortable 4-0 victory over their Manchester counterparts.

One of the goals was scored by the 19-year-old Dutchman, who controlled a long ball over the top and shrugged off his defender before firing the ball high into the net.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

And when the footage was shown to them by @leedsutdacademy, there were plenty of them who were left rather excited, with some of them hoping to see him make the break into the senior side before too long:

movement touch and strength there, I like it a lot”

“He’s going to be a superstar”
“Has to be making the squads now surely”
“Baller”
“GET HIM IN THAT FIRST TEAM”
“Summerville may just be the answer to the wing position. From what we’ve seen from him in pre-season he looks more than good enough to step up. So agile and tricky with pace and not afraid to take a player on. Would rather spend all the money we have on a midfielder/10”
“This guy is ripping it up isn’t he? Looks like a huge talent”

Do you think Summerville should be in the first team squad this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The midfielder has a glowing reputation from his time in the Netherlands, with former England defender Chris Powell once describing him as a ‘bag of tricks’, and with skills like this on show, surely it’s only a matter of time before he makes his way into the first team at Elland Road.
