CHERRIES have agreed a fresh deal with Leeds United to sign Luis Sinisterra on a permanent transfer, the Daily Echo understands.

Sinisterra joined Cherries on loan from the Championship club in September.

A clause was inserted giving the Dorset outfit the option to turn Sinisterra’s move into a permanent transfer, should they wish to.

However, it is understood the two clubs have now agreed on a different deal, not related to the loan clause.

In a way of guaranteeing Leeds the funds, Cherries have committed to paying a reported £20million for Sinisterra now, a lower figure than it would have cost them to turn the loan permanent in the summer.

Jaidon Anthony went to Leeds on loan when Sinisterra joined Cherries, but that move is not impacted. There is no buy option as part of that deal and Anthony is due to return to Cherries for pre-season.

After a slow start on the south coast, Sinisterra has looked a more lively threat in recent weeks.

The 24-year-old has now featured 17 times for Cherries in total, scoring three goals and providing three assists.

Winger Sinisterra made 26 appearances for Leeds, following his reported £21m move from Feyenoord in the summer of 2022, scoring eight goals.
