Player to travel to Yorkshire today as Leeds seal last-gasp loan signing – Fabrizio Romano

Jaidon Anthony is set to travel to Leeds later on Saturday 2 September after Leeds United sealed a straight loan swap with Bournemouth for Luis Sinisterra, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian transfer guru, taking to his personal Twitter account in the early hours of Saturday morning (2 September) confirmed that documents were signed before the close of the transfer window in order for Anthony to complete his loan move to Elland Road.

Sky Sports News reported live from the Vitality Stadium after the deadline on Friday night (1 September) to report that Anthony “who lit up the Championship” with the Cherries was coming the other way at the end of the deadline day with Luis Sinisterra going the other way.View Tweet

Leeds confirmed the signing of the 23-year-old winger, with Romano reporting that Anthony is set to travel into Yorkshire on Saturday as the Whites sealed his loan swap in the final hours on deadline day.

He tweeted: “Jaidon Anthony will travel to Leeds later today after documents signed before the close of the window.

“Season-long loan from Bournemouth, sealed in the final hours.”

Exceptional business

Leeds United fans have been through it this summer and it was the same again on deadline day as one more of their stars headed for the exit.

The Sinisterra move was on then off, then looked to be off again before the deal sheet secured extra time to reach this agreement.

And just when Daniel Farke was set to lose one of his star players, the club managed to pull off a coup that meant Sinisterra certainly won’t be missed on Elland Road as much as the fanbase thought they would with Anthony moving the other way.

The 23-year-old winger is just as gifted and talented as Sinisterra and is a shoo-in to make an immediate impact at Elland Road, given his recent success in the Championship the season before last as he formed a crucial component in Scott Parker’s promotion success at the Vitality Stadium during the 2021/22 campaign.

Anthony scored eight goals and provided six assists and also aided the Cherries’ quest to secure Premier League survival last season, under Gary O’Neil featuring across 30 top-flight games, so the 23-year-old is certainly well-equipped to thrive under Farke’s tutelage swiftly.

It is of course a blow to lose a star man on the final day but landing a proven Championship performer in return certainly softens that loss somewhat.
