LEEDS United boss Daniel Farke likened Luis Sinisterra’s permanent Cherries move to a microwave meal.

It was announced last week that Cherries had agreed a re-negotiated fee to make the Colombian winger a permanent member of their playing squad, Sinisterra initially joining on loan from Leeds in the summer.

The original deal had a conditional option for the move to become permanent, but Cherries managed to arrange a new deal on more beneficial terms.

It is reported that the new fee agreed is around the £20million mark.

Prior to submitting a request to leave Elland Road, Sinisterra made four competitive appearances under Farke before leaving for Cherries.

Discussing the now permanent departure of Sinisterra, Farke shared: "I think overall it's a good decision, beneficial for our future.

“Many compliments for our main people involved in negotiations.

"We wanted to have the perfect result for us and think we did.

“I never made a secret I really rate Luis from his football point of view, good player, good person, wish him all the best.

“He also made it clear in the summer he wanted this move. You have to accept there are good players playing for other clubs.

"We wish him really all the best, no hard feelings at all, fingers crossed for his future. For us as a club it's the right decision, it frees up some money to do some business we want to do in the summer.”
Farke also went on to detail his belief that players who requested a move away from the club were difficult to integrate back into the squad at their parent club.

He restarted: “I'm always a bit careful when a player wanted to go away, to bring him back.

“It's like when you put the food in the microwave, it never tastes like when it's freshly cooked."
