Earlier this summer, it was thought that Leeds would definitely need to sell the Dutchman to balance the books, but it turns out that the club’s financial situation is not as dire as initially thought. Moreover, they begrudgingly sold homegrown star Archie Gray to Tottenham, which eased any concerns.

Therefore, despite missing out on promotion back to the Premier League, Leeds are confident of keeping hold of Summerville despite high-profile interest in his services. The likes of Liverpool and Chelsea have been heavily linked with him, while more recently PSG forcefully entered the frame.

However, according to Ben Jacobs, Summerville would be ‘perfectly content’ with staying at Leeds for another season, despite him also previously stating that he could be one to watch for the Blues.

Summerville not pushing for Chelsea move

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jacobs said of the 22-year-old: “PSG haven’t bid yet, but the interest is real, and there’s a handful of Premier League clubs that could still enter the race as well. I think by the end of the window, Summerville will have alternatives to Leeds.”

“But what Leeds are trying to understand, now they don’t need to sell, is whether they can persuade him to do the extra year?…Summerville was never pushing to leave Leeds. It’s not a Willy Gnonto-Everton situation. He’s always been very respectful.”

“He’s always been very appreciative of Leeds and how they’ve helped him develop, and he likes it there. So if he goes, it will naturally be for an opportunity that has bigger wages, like European football.”

“But if he does end up staying at Leeds, I think under that scenario, he’ll be perfectly content as well, because he’s that kind of character that’s really bought into [Daniel] Farke, his style, and that puts Leeds again in a stronger position.”
