The Yorkshire Evening Post claims Leeds United winger Luis Sinisterra is “unlikely” to be available for the trip south to Bournemouth ahead of Sunday’s clash – after the Colombian was withdrawn against Leicester in the first half.

Sinisterra, 23, returned to the starting line-up against Leicester and scored a brilliant header to put the Whites in the lead on Tuesday night. But little over 10 minutes after his opener, and he limped off the field of play – another injury.

Injury – and of course, suspension after his red card against Aston Villa – has limited Sinisterra to just 22 outings this term. In that time, he has scored a decent seven goals – five of which have come in the Premier League for Leeds.

There have been more than glimpses that if Sinisterra was fit for the entire season, he has more than what it takes to replace the loss of Raphinha. But injury has been a real hit for the ex-Feyenoord man. Now, an update on him.

Leeds winger Sinisterra unlikely to be available for Bournemouth trip

The YEP report that after his injury against Leicester, £70k-a-week Sinisterra is ‘unlikely’ to be fit for Bournemouth. Another blow for Leeds, who were without Max Wober and Tyler Adams – the latter is likely to be out for the season.

The report states that his likely replacement will be Crysencio Summerville, who came on on Tuesday night. Indeed, Summerville earned praise for his outing and his defensive work from Ally McCoist. Willy Gnonto remained a sub.

But in what is now an absolutely massive game and one Leeds simply have to win if the club are to remain in the Premier League, losing Sinisterra is a blow. Hopefully, Leeds can welcome back Wober ahead of Sunday’s clash.
