Leeds United winger Luis Sinisterra is set to undergo a medical ahead of a loan move to Premier League side AFC Bournemouth, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The 24-year-old was one of the main players Daniel Farke wanted to keep hold of, however, it appears as though he will be making a return to the Premier League following in the footsteps of former teammate Tyler Adams.
Who is Luis Sinisterra?
The Colombian winger broke through with Once Caldas in his native country, before moving to Dutch side Feyenoord in 2018. He remained in the Netherlands for four years, making over 100 appearances and contributing to 64 goals.
This led to a €25 million switch to Elland Road, where he scored eight goals in 26 appearances as well as earning an additional seven caps for the Colombian national team, scoring an additional three goals.
Leeds United have already lost plenty of players following their relegation from the Premier League, which is expected but they’ve lost more than Southampton and Leicester.
Sinisterra is another huge loss, especially given the fact that they won’t get any fee because its a loan deal. Leeds will have plenty of targets that they will be looking to bring in but losing the Colombian is a loss.
What’s been said?
Journalist Fabrizio Romano posted the following tweet…
‘Bournemouth reach verbal agreement to sign Luis Sinisterra from Leeds United, here we go!
‘Deal being finalised between clubs as player already accepted. Understand it’s loan move for winger set to travel for medical.’
Sinisterra is arguably one of the biggest losses the club have had this summer if this deal goes through before the transfer window comes to an end.
The Colombian was crucial last season and will be a terrific signing for AFC Bournemouth, further strengthening their attacking options to get the club back to winning ways in the Premier League.
