The 23-year-old Colombian international is enjoying a season-long loan spell at Serie A rivals Lecce, with a view to gaining more first-team experience.
Cuadrado has scored three goals in 26 appearances this term, and has impressed in a variety of different roles, most frequently on the right side of defence and midfield.
