Luis Sinisterra to Leeds United a done deal as Whites finalise club-record move with Feyenoord; lengthy contract revealed

Feyenoord star Luis Sinisterra

Leeds United have reportedly agreed a deal with Feyenoord to sign Luis Sinisterra, with the 23-year-old set to become Raphinha’s replacement at Elland Road.

Raphinha is a target for Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona this summer. Chelsea have a fee sorted with Leeds for his move, although the Brazilian seemingly only wants to join Barcelona.

Amid the Raphinha negotiations, Leeds have struck to land Colombia international Sinisterra from Feyenoord.

According to Fabrizio Romano, a deal for the winger is done. The transfer documents are pending – once they go through it will be announced, potentially in the coming days.

Leeds will pay the Dutch club €25million for Sinisterra, plus add-ons. This equates to an initial payment of £21.4m to make it Feyenoord’s record sale of a player.

The wide man has already agreed a long-term contract with Jesse Marsch’s team, which will last until June 2027.

Leeds have made some serious moves during the current transfer window and the capture of Sinisterra continues that.

He will likely become their sixth summer signing. The Whites have already landed Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, Marc Roca and Darko Gyabi. They are also on the verge of announcing Tyler Adams’ move from RB Leipzig, which looks set to go through before the Sinisterra capture.

Luis Sinisterra to succeed Raphinha

The West Yorkshire side needed to bring in top talent to replace the likes of Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips. The latter will represent Manchester City next season after joining in a deal worth £45m.

And Marsch is getting an exciting, plus deadly, player in Sinisterra. Last term, he registered 23 goals and 14 assists in all competitions for Feyenoord.

The five-cap international also gained experience in Europe, making 12 appearances in the Europa Conference League as Feyenoord lost to Roma in the final.

Sinisterra has big shoes to fill when it comes to succeeding Raphinha. However, he clearly has the ability to get amongst the goals and also get Leeds fans out of their seats.

And they might not stop with Sinisterra, as Charles De Ketelaere is also on Victor Orta’s radar this summer.
