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.
Sinisterra completes Bournemouth transfer
Friday saw confirmation that Leeds had agreed to sell Sinisterra to Bournemouth on a permanent deal, with a fairly petty post shared on the matter:
Alongside this, it has been reported that a £20million fee was agreed between the clubs, seeing Leeds break even on the sum they paid to Feyenoord back in 2022.

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.
