Leeds winger Luis Sinisterra is expected to be out until after the World Cup break due to a foot injury.

The 23-year-old Colombia international, who signed from Feyenoord in the summer for a reported £21million, sustained the injury in the recent home defeat to Fulham and missed last Saturday’s Premier League win at Liverpool.

Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch, whose side play Bournemouth at Elland Road on Saturday, said: ‘Luis Sinisterra has a foot injury that turns out to be more than what we thought it was.

‘He wasn’t making the progress we expected so we did a scan. He is probably out until after the World Cup break.’

Marsch said Sinisterra had damaged a ligament that controlled the metatarsals in his foot and doctors were hopeful it has not been ruptured.

The Colombian international has shown glimpses of promise since his summer arrival to Elland Road.

In ten appearances across all competitions, he has scored three goals and has one assist.

He was however sent off for two yellow cards in their goalless draw with Aston Villa at the start of October. 

Without Sinisterra, Leeds claimed their biggest win of the season against Liverpool – the first time Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost in front of a crowd at Anfield in the Premier League since 2017.

The result relieved some of the pressure on Marsch after they had gone eight league games without a victory.

Leeds are 15th in the standings ahead of their important clash with Bournemouth at the weekend.
