Georginio Rutter: I’m very happy to be here

Striker on joining Leeds.


New Leeds United striker Georginio Rutter spoke exclusively to LUTV after becoming the second signing of the January transfer window for the Whites.

The 20-year-old completed the move from German Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim for a club record transfer fee.

Rutter spoke of his delight at moving to Elland Road and can’t wait to get going in West Yorkshire.

“I’m very happy to be here,” said Rutter.

“The Premier League is the best league in football and with Leeds I hope the rest of this season will go good.

“I will give my energy for the club, I’m very energetic and dribbling is my favourite thing to do on the pitch.

“Before I came here Illan Meslier told me Leeds was a real family.

“He said the fans are amazing and he offered me any help I need to settle in.

“Football is for the fans, they are very important for the club and I want to give energy for the fans in the stadium.”
