Leeds United star Luis Sinisterra has told Dutch outlet Soccer News that he would love to return to Feyenoord at some point in the future – having moved to Elland Road from the Eredivisie side in the summer, for a fee of £26million.
Sinisterra, 23, has endured an up and down start to life at Elland Road. Goals against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup and the League against Everton and Brentford came after a hamstring injury during the pre-season tour of Australia.
Then, against Aston Villa he was sent off for a ridiculous second yellow card – a game which Leeds held on to draw 0-0. Now, he is injured again, returning to Feyenoord with a protective boot alongside Bournemouth man Marco Senesi.
Speaking after his return to his old club earlier this month, Sinisterra spoke of his affection for Feyenoord. He sees the club as his home, and hope he returns to play for them at some point in the future. His Leeds deal lasts until 2027.
“Hopefully this will be my home forever. I’m not saying bye, but see you later. Maybe I’ll come back in the future. I’d love it if that happened. I wish the team a great season. They’re doing great. I wish everyone the best,” Sinisterra said.

It is a bit strange how much affection Sinisterra is showing for his old club, on his social channels. Of course, he has posted messages to Leeds fans on Instagram. But his return to the Dutch side, constant posts on his story, a bit much.
Sinisterra needs to remember that with comments like these, he is no longer a Feyenoord player. He is a Leeds United player. He could do a lot worse than continue to work hard on his rehab and return to the side, in form.
While he has shown glimpses of magic, he has already suffered two lengthy injuries and a red card. He is yet to prove his transfer fee and should be focusing on improving that, instead of reminiscing what was at his old club.
