O’Rourke: Yet another Leeds star to go after big development

Luis Sinisterra is set join the exodus of Leeds United stars just 12 months after joining the club, sources have told Football Insider.

The 24-year-old was not part of the Whites squad which lost 1-0 away at Birmingham on Saturday (12 August).

When quizzed about his absence by journalist Phil Hay post-match, Leeds boss Daniel Farke only confirmed Sinisterra was “not available”.

The German went on to say he only wants “people who are fully focused and committed” at the club for this season.

It is believed Sinisterra is likely to move on before the end of the summer window on 1 September.

A well-placed source has told Football Insider that clubs across Europe are eyeing a move for the Colombia international – who has a reported release clause in his contract.

No fewer than nine senior players have departed Elland Road on permanent or loan deals so far this summer.

Jack Harrison became the most recent exit on Monday (14 August) when he joined Everton on a season-long temporary move.

Rodrigo, Robin Koch, Max Wober, Tyler Roberts, Joel Robles, Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca have all also left the club this summer.

Meanwhile, Adam Forshaw departed Leeds upon the expiry of his contract in June.

Former fan favourite Wilfried Gnonto has refused to play for the club as he tries to force through a move to Everton this summer.

Sinisterra joined the Yorkshire giants from Feyenoord for a reported fee of £21million just last summer (2022).

He managed seven goals and one assist in just over 1000 minutes of football in the 2022-23 campaign as Leeds were relegated from the Premier League.
