Van Bronckhorst may fire Wright with Summerville

Since Summerville’s £1.3m move to Elland Road in September 2020, the 20-year-old has struggled to hold onto a place in Leeds’ first-team squad. However, it’s clear that the £8.4k per week winger boasts an incredible amount of potential.

Indeed, despite making just five Premier League appearances this season, the £1.8million striker, whom Ben Parker dubbed a “terrifying” talent, has been in sensational form for the sub-team. 23 for the whites, scoring six goals and registering one. assist in his 12 outings in the Premier League 2.

It’s clear why Chris Powell seemed very excited about the Netherlands Under-21 international’s future in the professional game, speaking of Summerville’s loan time at ADO Den Haag: “You could see the raw talent he had. . He is tiny, about five feet tall, but he has wonderful balance. One on one is his forte, against players. He’s a pretty free spirit on the wing, in a good way.

“He’ll turn you on, he’s a bag of tricks. There’s some talent there, it’s just how it’s harnessed and what the coaches demand of it.

“He has played for the Netherlands Under-18s and Under-19s, so he is well regarded in Dutch football. His talent is not in doubt. He will have to learn how Leeds want him to play, in the Under-23s, and accept it. He is an exciting signing.”

Considering how poor Scott Wright has been following his £200k move to Rangers from Aberdeen in February 2021, it’s clear why Van Bronckhorst would be interested in a Summerville deal ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Indeed, in his 14 Premiership appearances this season, the £900,000 forward has scored just two goals, recorded no assists and missed two big chances for his side. These returns have seen the £10k-a-week winger average a 6.89 SofaScore rating, ranking him as the 10th worst Rangers player in the league.

As such, with some reports already suggesting that Van Bronckhorst could look to offload the 24-year-old this summer, this would seem like a smart move by the Dutchman, who could then reinvest funds received from the former Scotland Under-21 international. sale in a move for Leeds’ much more promising star.
