Following the announcement from the German media and subsequent journalists that a fee had been agreed between Leeds United and Hoffenheim for Georginio Rutter, we now have a bit more detail about the next steps.

They come courtesy of Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, who took to Twitter to give us the latest about the situation on Thursday.

He says the player will ‘fly directly’ from Germany to Leeds ‘this evening’, and that has been ‘confirmed’ to him by those around the deal.

Not only that, but the French forward will undergo his medical ahead of the Elland Road move ‘in the next few hours’.

The player is set to become Hoffenheim’s third most expensive departure in the club’s history, and it seems Leeds’ offer was simply one they couldn’t refuse.

This is a big deal for the Premier League side, who continue to show faith in Jesse Marsch despite some poor results by giving him the players he feels he needs to turn things around in Yorkshire.

The 20-year-old has so far scored two goals and picked up three assists in 17 appearances for the German side this season, and boasts two U21 caps for France.
