Leeds United have rejected a £30m offer from Brighton for striker Georginio Rutter.

It is understood Albion made the bid for the 22-year-old Frenchman after signing winger Yankuba Minteh from fellow Premier League side Newcastle United for £30m on Monday.

They have also previously shown interest in Elland Road forward Crysencio Summerville.

Rutter has four years left on his contract with the Championship side after being signed from Hoffenheim in January 2023 in a club record deal which could rise to £35m.

He has scored eight goals in 64 appearances for Leeds.
