Georginio Rutter’s future has been given a concerning update to Leeds United.

Georginio Rutter, 21, had a difficult start to his Leeds career before emerging as one of Daniel Farke’s team’s best players this season.

Leeds faced relegation in the 2023–24 Premier League season, as the French player—who joined from Hoffenheim for a rumored club record fee of £35.5 million in 2023—struggled to score goals.

Leeds is still determined to return to the top division, but their hopes of doing so were dashed on Good Friday as they drew 2-2 with Watford.

In 41 games this season across all competitions, Rutter has tallied seven goals and eighteen assists, demonstrating his return to peak form in the Championship.

If Leeds United doesn’t get promoted, they will lose a number of important players.
If Leeds United is unable to get promotion back to the Premier League, a number of players may depart the team in the summer, according to Football Insider’s transfer correspondent Peter O’Rourke.

In an interview with Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, O’Rourke said: “If Leeds does not win promotion, then teams will be interested in Rutter and other elite players.” If that’s the case, people like Gnonto and Summerville will also be sought for elsewhere.

As the end of the season approaches, Leeds is involved in a four-way competition with Ipswich, Leicester, and Southampton for automatic promotion.

With 87 points, Ipswich Town leads the league at the moment, closely followed by Leeds with 86 points in second place. With a game remaining, Leicester City trails Farke’s team by just one point in third place. With two games remaining, Southampton can still finish in the top two with 74 points.

As usual, the Championship promotion race will be fiercely competitive, and Farke must help the team reach its goal lest the Whites find themselves up for fire in the summer.
