Leeds United manager Jesse Marsch will have all of his summer signings at his disposal for the trip to Southampton on Saturday, Beren Cross reports.
Leeds travel to St Mary’s for a 15.00 kick-off, looking to start the campaign with back-to-back wins after beating Wolves 2-1 last weekend.
The Whites have spent just over £95million in this transfer window, recruiting goalkeeper Joel Robles, right-back Rasmus Kristensen, midfielders Marc Roca, Darko Gyabi, Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson along with winger Luis Sinisterra.
Kristensen, Adams, Roca and Aaronson all made full debuts against Wolves, while Gyabi was an unused substitute.
Sinisterra was absent for the game, but he’s now recovered from the hamstring problem he sustained in pre-season.
Leeds Live’s Cross writes that ‘all’ of the new arrivals are ‘finally available to Marsch’ for the clash with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
‘At last’, that should mean that the American has a bench with ‘multiple game-changing options’ on it.
Leeds fans should be excited for their first glimpse of Sinisterra.
The 23-year-old put up outstanding numbers for Europa Conference League finalists Feyenoord last season, scoring 23 times and providing 14 assists in all competitions.
But even beyond those contributions, he looks like he’s going to be an electrifying player to watch.
Indeed, he comfortably led the Eredivisie for successful dribbles per game last season with 3.6, a full 0.7 clear of nearest challenger Cody Gakpo.
The Colombian will want to prove he can fill the void left by Raphinha’s club-record £52.2million move to Barcelona.
