There has been a high level of confidence at the Bournemouth end that they will get a deal done for Leeds United attacking midfielder Luis Sinisterra before the transfer deadline tonight, according to The Athletic journalist Phil Hay.
The Colombian has always made it known that he would love to remain in the Premier League after the Elland Road club got relegated last term, and he could be getting his wish before the end of the day.
The Cherries have been in talks to land Sinisterra all day and have submitted a loan offer with an option worth over £25 million to sign him from Leeds.

The South American could be reuniting with Tyler Adams at the Vitality Stadium, and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano already claimed this afternoon that it is a done deal.

Wilfried Gnonto and Crysencio Summerville are also attracting Premier League interest from Everton and Burnley, respectively, but the duo are expected to remain with the West Yorkshire club beyond the summer transfer window.
Sinisterra, 24, joined Leeds from Feyenoord last summer and ended his debut campaign with the Whites with seven goals and an assist in 22 games across all competitions, before an ankle injury ruled him out of the rest of the campaign in April.
He has made four appearances in all competitions this term and was among the goals when the Peacocks got their first Championship victory of the season on Saturday in the 4-3 win over Ipswich Town.
Sinisterra had a release clause included in his deal upon joining Leeds, and the player and the club were involved in a contractual wrangle last month which got him excluded from first-team training for a short while.
It appears Bournemouth have found a way to somehow activate the clause, and an official announcement confirming that he has swapped West Yorkshire for South West England could be on the cards.
