Crysencio Summerville opens up on off-pitch bonding with Leeds United teammate

Crysencio Summerville has revealed that he still follows Dutch side Feyenoord along with his fellow Leeds United teammate Luis Sinisterra.

The 21-year-old was born in Rotterdam, and joined Feyenoord's youth ranks at the age of seven in 2008. He spent 12 years on the books of his hometown club but never registered a single senior appearance.

After loan spells at FC Dordrecht in the second tier, and ADO Den Haag in the Eredivisie, Summerville joined Leeds United. The Netherlands under-21 international is enjoying his breakthrough season at Elland Road with four goals in 16 Premier League appearances. But the winger has admitted that he still follows his former club.

"We certainly talk about Feyenoord sometimes," Summerville told Voetbal International (via "I think when I go back (after the international break), we always talk about 'have you seen the match against Ajax?'.

"Sometimes we watch Feyenoord together, or when we while eating we talk about Feyenoord, for example about his time there."

Sinisterra arrived at Leeds from Feyenoord back in the summer but has been plagued by injury during his debut season in England. The Colombian international sustained an injury during pre-season, but scored in each of his first three starts for the Whites.

He missed nine games either side of the World Cup break, and faced yet another setback in February which saw him miss a further five games.

Sinisterra enjoyed an extraordinary campaign during his last season at Feyenoord, and scored 23 goals in 49 appearances. He was named in the UEFA Europa Conference Team of the Season and was also voted the competition's Young Player of the Season.
