Leeds have signed Feyenoord winger Luis Sinisterra as their busy summer of transfer activity continues.
The 23-year-old arrives at Elland Road for an undisclosed fee and has penned a five-year deal, running until the summer of 2027.
The Colombian can operate as a winger and offers a potential option for Jesse Marsch if Raphinha's expected move away from the club is completed. With key players Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips exiting the club this summer, Leeds have moved quickly to maintain and improve their squad.
Sinisterra scored 23 goals and made 14 assists in a total of 49 appearances for Feyenoord last season as they reached the Europa League Conference final, where they lost 1-0 to Roma, and managed a third-place finish in the Dutch top flight.
Sinisterra becomes Leeds' sixth summer signing after capturing Tyler Adams, paying £24.7m for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson, £10m each for Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca and Salzburg right-back Rasmus Kristensen plus £5m for Manchester City's Darko Gyabi.
Who will be on the move this summer when the transfer window opens on June 10 and closes at 11pm on September 1?
