Leeds transfer news: Fabrizio Romano shares Georginio Rutter update

Leeds United are closing in on the signing of Georginio Rutter from Hoffenheim.

The transfer insider said the Whites “are finally exchanging the documents” of the deal with Hoffenheim.

Leeds will pay an initial €28million fee (£24.8million), with add-ons taking the deal to around 40million (£35.5million).

If all goes well, Rutter could officially sign for the club on Thursday evening.

Romano believes the player ‘can travel to Leeds tonight for medical tests’ before signing the contract.

According to Goal.com, Rutter will pen a contract at Leeds until the summer of 2028.

The 20-year-old is all set to become the most expensive signing in Leeds’ history .

Rutter’s reported transfer fee will surpass the £27million Leeds paid Valencia for Rodrigo Moreno in August 2020.

Leeds fans will no doubt be buzzing with the signing of Rutter, one of the best young talents in the Bundesliga.

Better yet, a contract until 2028 suggests both parties have a lot of faith in one another.

Leeds clearly think Rutter has a huge future in the game.

And the player himself seemingly sees himself at Elland Road for the long-term.

Indeed, he has reportedly expressed a lot of enthusiasm in linking up with Leeds since links emerged.

Leeds may be battling against Premier League relegation, but they’re putting together an exciting team.

Hopefully Rutter can hit the ground running for Jesse Marsch’s side and help pull them up the table.
