Elland Road remained largely quiet on the transfer front as Leeds did not add many new players to their first team, while there were also no senior outgoings.


Leeds Under-23s starlet Summerville was heavily linked with an exit with German club Hamburg keen on a loan deal for him, but a move did not materialise, meaning boss Marcelo Bielsa will be able to call on his services when necessary.



Ex-White Dorigo insists Leeds did the right thing by keeping the winger at Elland Road, as he will now remain as an option for Bielsa for the remainder of the season as they continue to remain shorthanded in several departments owing to injuries.


Dorigo added that Summerville has started to take his game to the next level since making his senior debut for Leeds this season.



“One bit of non-business that I thought was good was Crysencio Summerville staying put at Leeds”, Dorigo wrote in his Yorkshire Evening Post column.


“I thought he was superb when he came on at West Ham United in the FA Cup.



“I know a couple of youngsters started that game but he looked to be on that next step of the journey.


“He has to learn from his previous experiences and to build upon it you need to play more games – Cody Drameh obviously decided the best way to do that was to go to Cardiff City – but, in the present situation, I think Summerville was right to stay and the club were right to keep him.


“It’s not as if we’ve got a lot of bodies hanging around the place, surplus to requirements.”


Summerville already has eight first team appearances to his name across all competitions so far this term and will now be hoping to add to that tally in the second half of the season.
