Luis Sinisterra looks set to remain at Leeds United this summer, if reports from his native Colombia are accurate.
Colombian newspaper AS – in particular – claim that Leeds always wanted to retain the talented winger’s services following their relegation from the Premier League last season. Fortunately for the Whites hierarchy it appears they are going to get their wish, as AS reports that Sinisterra’s future “has changed in recent weeks” and he will therefore remain at Elland Road for the 2023-24 season.
Given the 24-year-old’s quality, it is easy to see why Leeds are so keen on retaining him. Sinisterra joined Leeds for a £22m fee from Dutch side Feyenoord last summer and despite suffering from repeated injuries managed seven goals in 22 appearances for the West Yorkshire club last season.
Sinisterra has been linked with Serie A outfit AC Milan so far this summer, but his appearance in a 2-0 friendly defeat to rivals Manchester United last week indicates that new Whites manager Daniel Farke sees the Colombian as part of his plans this term.
Were Leeds able to keep hold of Sinisterra as well as young talent Wilfried Gnonto this summer, it would give the side a massive boost to the side’s offensive capabilities for the upcoming Championship season.
With the Whites’ defensive ranks expected to be imminently bolstered by the arrival of Welsh international Ethan Ampadu, as well as links emerging surrounding a move for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, Leeds look set to build a squad capable of mounting a convincing promotion push next season.
