Lawyer jets into UK to complete 'insane' Leeds United deal for Georginio Rutter - Sky Sports
Lawyers of Georginio Rutter are already on their way to the United Kingdom as Leeds United are close to completing their second major signing of this month, as reported by Sky Sports Germany.
Sky Germany [9 January] report that the lawyers and advisors of the player are looking to sort out the final details to complete an “insane” deal.
The 20-year-old “lightning-fast” forward is expected to complete his medical in the next few days. The Whites are ready to pay a package that could cost up to £35m including bonus payments.
The highly-talented Frenchman has already signed a long-term deal with the Whites.
Leeds are really giving their best shot in the transfer market, and the club are doing everything they can to help Jesse Marsch.
The Whites have already signed Max Wober from RB Salzburg and they are now close to securing a deal for Rutter.
The French forward is a highly-rated young talent, and the Whites are ready to pay big for him. His scoring records are not that impressive, but he is a fantastic talent who can grow into a top player under proper management.
The Whites were very active in the window as well where they made their signings quickly, and we see a similar approach here as well.
The league form now needs to improve. Since the Premier League restart after the World Cup break, the Whites are yet to win a game.
They have been involved in nail-biting thrillers against Newcastle and West Ham, but it’s time to convert those draws into wins.
It appears that Rutter will join the club shortly, but it remains to be seen whether the club will sign more players after this.
