Leeds United face Hull City on Monday evening in the Championship as two Aston Villa-linked stars go head-to-head.

Unai Emery's side are keen on a swoop for the Whites' attacker Crysencio Summerville this summer, according to a report by Football Insider, with fellow Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion also credited with an interest.

The former Feyenoord man, who is 22-years-old, has been in fine form for Daniel Farke's side this season and has scored 16 goals in all competitions.

Leeds could face a battle to keep hold of him in the next transfer window, regardless of what league they are in. They are 2nd in the table right now behind Ipswich Town as they battle it out for an immediate return to the top flight.

Hull and ex-Aston Villa winger Jaden Philogene will be looking to derail their rivals' promotion push as they aim to become the first team to win at Elland Road this term.

Liam Rosenior's men signed England youth international Philogene last summer and he has since become one of their most prized assets.

Aston Villa have a buy-back clause if they end up in the same league as the Tigers. However, the Yorkshire outfit have slipped away from the play-offs a bit and need to get back on track to avoid missing out on the top six in this campaign.

Philogene has eight goals to his name so far this term and is one of the most talented players in the Football League along with Summerville.
