Leeds United sold Luis Sinisterra to Bournemouth this week as the player agreed to a permanent stay at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite the transfer window shutting last week, Leeds have been busy in wrapping up a key departure that has seemingly been a long time coming.

Luis Sinisterra’s move to Bournemouth in August was only a loan deal, but it was obvious that he wouldn’t be coming back to Elland Road.

Revealed: How much Leeds are clearing from wage bill

The winger was one of those with a loan clause in his contract, which indicates that he was also subject to a wage cut when the club were relegated.

According to Capology, Sinisterra’s current wage is £65,000-per-week, which sees Leeds clear £3,380,000 across a yearly salary with this permanent agreement.

Journalist: Sell-on clause heads to Colombian side Once Caldas

Leeds aren’t going to see the entirety of that £20million sum, though, according to journalist Pipe Sierra, who claims that a 5% clause is included in the deal.

That pertains to Sinisterra’s former club in Colombia, Once Caldas, where he made his debut – which means £1million is heading their way.
