Hoffenheim sidelines Rutter due to Leeds United transfer rumors

The 20-year-old has shown real promise since arriving at the Bundesliga club from Rennes in 2021 and has emerged as Leeds United's primary target for bolstering their attack in their bid to avoid relegation.

Leeds United

, who are only two points above the relegation zone, has been linked with a €30m move to bring

Georginio Rutter

to Elland Road. Rumors suggest that the 20-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Leeds as



temporarily removed the Frenchman from their first-team environment.

A club statement reads:

"For the time being, Georginio Rutter will not take part at all in training or in the friendly match against Servette.

"Since yesterday [Friday], there have been rumors circulating of a move to the Premier League for the Frenchman."

The German club's director,

Alexander Rosen


"Georgi has been confronted with a major issue that is taking a lot of his energy.

"He is a young man and it is therefore understandable that he is preoccupied by the current situation.

"From our side, it is a case of dealing with a young man in a responsible manner and for that reason, we have decided that he should not participate in full training with the first team right now."
