Georginio Rutter wants to join Leeds United. Talks with TSG Hoffenheim are now at an advanced stage.
Georginio Rutter will probably leave TSG Hoffenheim in the winter transfer window. Leeds United offer a proud sum and have already come to an agreement with the storm youngster.
Hoffenheim only secured the services of Georginio Rutter a year ago. The young striker was signed by Stade Rennes for just under a million euros. Actually, that was the plan, he should help TSG for several years and develop at the club.
But nothing will come of it: Leeds United would like to guide the Frenchman to England in this January transfer.
Rutter agreed with Leeds – Hoffenheim provides information in a new statement
Recently it was said that Rutter was not exactly averse to this plan. In the meantime, however, a new level has been reached, which Fabrizio Romano reports: While the talks between Leeds and Hoffenheim are already “well advanced”, the club and the player are said to have already reached an agreement.
The transfer fee is around 30 million euros. A sum that is so well above the own investment from a year ago and at the same time above the estimated market value of 16 million euros (via transfer market) is that the Bundesliga club cannot help but deal intensively with this transfer project.
Leeds, Romano continued, will want to use the coming days to get the commitment through.
Now there was also a new development on the part of TSG. In , sports director Alexander Rosen commented on the subject and the decision to release Rutter from training for the time being.
