For the past few days, reports from the German press have indicated Hamburg are keen to sign Leeds United’s Crysencio Summerville on a loan deal in the winter market.

On Friday, both Bild and Hamburger Morgenpost reported the German club held talks with the Whites, and the 20-year-old is keen to join them on a temporary deal until the end of the season.

The winger has started only one match in all competitions this season and a temporary move to Germany would help him get more minutes. HSV, however, have not found an agreement with Marcelo Bielsa’s side for the Netherlands U21 international’s transfer.

Today’s edition of Hamburger Morgenpost claims Summerville is the ‘preferred candidate’ for HSV to strengthen their attacking positions. Their bosses ‘want a decision’ from Leeds, on whether they will send the player out on loan, over the weekend. 

It’s said the ‘talks with Leeds are increasingly difficult’ as the Premier League side’s officials are ‘proving to be insecure’ during the negotiations. The newspaper even states HSV are receiving mixed signals from England.

HSV don’t want to make any last-minute decisions on Monday and are waiting for an answer from Leeds over the weekend.

If no progress is made in their efforts to sign Summerville, they will be ‘examining Plan B’.
