Leeds United ace Brenden Aaronson has told Amazon Prime’s YouTube channel that Crysencio Summerville and Luis Sinisterra are the club’s most-skillful players, failing to pick between the two – overlooking the likes of Willy Gnonto.

Leeds have a whole host of attacking, skillful players now. Georginio Rutter is renowned for his skill, his flair and his ability to beat players. He was an unused sub against Brentford on Sunday – but could make his debut this weekend.

Gnonto has become one of the first names on the team sheet of late, scoring three goals in his 11 Leeds appearances. The Italy star has been superb for the Whites. His tenacity, his speed and his skill making him one of our best players.

Jack Harrison’s 5-a-side-like close control makes him one of our most skillful. Joe Gelhardt’s assist against Brighton last term was a bit of genius, Sam Greenwood is technically gifted. But Aaronson has picked Summerville and Sinisterra.

“Most skillful player at Leeds?” Aaronson was asked, on Amazon Prime’s YouTube channel. He said: “Ooh, that’s a tough one. It is between Crysencio Summerville and Luis Sinisterra. Do I have to pick one? Can I say both? Both.”

Aaronson: Summerville and Sinisterra are Leeds’ most-skillful players

Aaronson is up there, too. His ability to drift past opponents has not been seen of late, as much as it was in the first half of the season. His form has dipped since the return to action after the World Cup. But Leeds do have skillful stars.

Summerville is incredibly skillful and Sinisterra has that South American flair, though Leeds fans are yet to see the latter in full flow. A hamstring injury, a foot injury and a red card at Villa has disrupted the Colombia international so far.

But right now, you would have to argue that Gnonto is our most-skillful player. He is a serious talent and considering we got him for £4m, Leeds have a real bargain on their hands. Jesse Marsch discussed if he is now worth £40m.
