The Colombian, who saw a move to Club Brugge break down last year, burst onto the scene with Once Caldas last season, impressing on his debut in February, providing an assist in a 2-0 win over Jaguares.

Sinisterra remained a regular for the rest of the season, scoring four goals and proving three assists in 17 appearances.

The forward’s performances clearly impressed watching Feyenoord scouts and the Rotterdam club parted with €2 million to bring the 19-year-old to Rotterdam.

Style of Play

Sinisterra describes himself on the Feyenoord website as a powerful winger with speed and trickery, who loves to score goals.

At Once Caldas he played on either wing but looked at his best when deployed on the left and allowed to cut inside and shoot with his stronger right foot. He looks an exciting prospect and one that will look to get fans on the edge of their seat.

What to expect from Sinisterra this season

PSV and Ajax have both had success in scouting the America’s in recent years with the former getting Hirving Lozano, while the latter has David Neres and saw Davinson Sanchez develop into a world-beater. Feyenoord will be hoping to have similar success with Sinisterra, who despite not playing much first-team football, looks a top prospect.

Feyenoord is likely to ease Sinisterra into the first-team but with Bilal Basacikoglu gone and Jean-Paul Boetius having issues during pre-season, he should be given plenty of chances to impress.

Sinisterra may be the next top South American forward to make a name for himself in the Eredivisie.
