The arrival of Crysencio Summerville at Leeds United should pave the way for Jordan Stevens to depart on loan.
Leeds have secured the service of Summerville on a three-year deal, but that will lead to the exit of Stevens.
The under-23 winger is expected to join Swindon Town in League One.
Summerville has been announced as the latest young player through the door at Leeds this window.
The 18-year-old joins from Feyenoord with Eredivisie experience under his belt. However, it appears that he’s a signing for the under-23s.
Adam Pope from BBC Leeds is reporting that the arrival of Summerville should open the door for Stevens to move out on loan.
Richie Wellens has recently revealed that he’s expecting Stevens to sign for his Swindon Town side.
In a recent interview with the BBC, he revealed that Marcelo Bielsa would give that move the green-light when a replacement was signed.
He revealed he expected him through the door by September 21st.
This makes sense.
Bielsa likes to have under-23s in-and-around his first-team and Stevens has been involved regularly over the last 18 months.
Summerville’s arrival covers his potential exit, with a loan move to Swindon seemingly on the horizon.
That’s a good move for the winger, who needs a platform in senior football.
Wellens clearly rates him and a 40+ game season in the EFL is right for him at this stage of his career.
