Daniel Farke’s Leeds United team has seen a standout season from Crysencio Summerville.


Summerville determined that staying at Leeds for the summer would be the best course of action for his career after consulting with his agent and people close to him. This decision has clearly paid off.


The two seasons before this one saw Summerville gradually incorporated into the first team at Elland Road. He made nine appearances in all competitions during the 2021–2022 season, but his breakthrough season came last year when he scored four goals in 28 Premier League games.


But this season, he has taken centre stage, and Leeds had great expectations for him even back in the summer of 2021, a year after he arrived from Feyenoord, according to Phil Hay of the Athletic.


Hay has stated that in order to push Summerville into the starting lineup under Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds decided not to show a strong desire to capture long-term target Ryan Kent from Rangers.


The Summerville ruling was validated.


Rangers valued Kent at almost £15 million that summer, according to the Scottish Sun, so all things considered, the decision has turned out to be the right one.


Leeds, who only joined Fenerbahce on a free transfer in the summer, are reportedly still big fans of Kent, and an exit from the team looks likely this month.

Given the prior rumours, it probably says volumes that Kent, who has hardly played in Turkey, was unable to obtain a transfer to a Premier League team after leaving Rangers.


Kent, who primarily plays in the Scottish Premiership and English Championship, has never scored more than ten goals in a single season of his professional career. He is currently 27 years old.


Summerville, who is 22 years old, has already scored 12 goals in 23 games this season, indicating that Leeds made the right decision by putting more faith in his growth than in signing Kent.
