Leeds United agreed to sell Luis Sinisterra for £20million this week, calling time on his Elland Road career after ditching Championship football for Bournemouth in the summer.

The Whites had plenty to get to grips with when returning to the Championship in August, as players departed left and right through loan clauses in their contracts.

Luis Sinisterra was the last to exit via this clause, joining Bournemouth on loan on deadline day in the summer.

This week brought confirmation that Leeds had agreed to sell Sinisterra to Bournemouth for £20million, breaking even on the fee they paid for him in 2022:

It sees Sinisterra’s time at Leeds officially come to an end less than two years since he joined, agreeing to stay at the Vitality Stadium long-term.

Here, we look at two other players we could expect permanent deals agreed for very soon…

Diego Llorente

Diego Llorente was actually cast out from the club rather than jumping ship, sent out on loan in January 2023 to Roma, where he has made himself at home.

Llorente has been a fairly reliable presence in the Roma back line since joining, ridding himself of constant injury troubles to be a regular starter.

Reports from Italy revealed this week that a £4.27million fee is all but agreed between the two clubs for Llorente to remain in the capital beyond this season.

While Sinisterra’s sale saw Leeds break even, Leeds would be making a near-£14million loss on Llorente in this deal.

Max Wöber

Max Wöber is another that looks to be a popular figure at his current club, swapping Elland Road for Borussia Monchengladbach not long after Daniel Farke made the opposite switch.

The Bundesliga side haven’t been great at all with their defensive record this term, while Wöber himself has been mistake-prone again with one red card and the second-worst goals conceded tally in the division.

However, reports have been frequent from that part of the world indicating that if funds are available, Wöber will be a permanent signing for his loan club.
