And that could speed-up the departure of Raphinha after the Whites secured the Brazilian’s replacement.

Raphinha, who is currently on holiday in Ibiza with stunning wife Taia Rodrigues, is set to snub Arsenal and Chelsea.

The star has his heart set on a dream move to Barcelona, who are weighing up whether to sign him.

But Leeds boss Jesse Marsch already now has a ready-made replacement after securing Sinisterra.

The attacker’s displays in his homeland soon led to a move to Holland with Feyenoord in 2018.

The winger only made seven senior appearances during his first season there, but he became an established member of the side the following year.

But it was last term that produced his best form yet as he scored 23 goals and produced 14 assists in 49 appearances.

Sinisterra leaves Feyenoord with a record of 35 goals and 29 assists in 113 matches.

He has now become the sixth summer signing for Leeds.

He follows the arrivals of Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams, Darko Gyabi, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca at Elland Road.

Sinisterra’s transfer is subject to international clearance and a work permit.
