Bid Accepted: Leeds United told £12m bid would be accepted-Sources

Football Insider revealed on Friday (4 August) that the Whites are monitoring the 26-year-old’s situation after his stellar 2022-23 campaign.

However, Coventry are desperate to keep hold of Hamer as they attempt to push for promotion to the Premier League once again this term.

The Sky Blues have already sold last season’s top scorer Viktor Gyokeres to Sporting CP for a reported fee of around £20million.

It is believed they are likely to ask for another eight-figure fee if they are forced to part with Hamer in the final month of the window.

Premier League clubs have also registered their interest in Hamer – with Burnley seeing a player-plus-cash bid rejected earlier this summer.

A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Coventry could even be willing to risk losing the midfielder for free in 2024.

The Brazil-born star is currently out of contract in less than 12 months and can negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides in January.

Hamer managed 11 goals and 10 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions last term.

He has now racked up 130 games across three seasons at Coventry since arriving in England in July 2020.

Leeds

Both Leeds and Coventry start their respective Championship campaigns on Sunday (6 August).

Daniel Farke’s side have seen Marc Roca and Brenden Aaronson depart on loan, while Weston McKennie has returned to Juventus after the end of his loan at Elland Road and Adam Forshaw has seen his contract expire.

Leeds United man not happy and could make return to former club, report suggests

21-year-old Frenchman Rutter, has struggled to make the breakthrough he would have wanted to at Elland Road. In the Whites’ relegation-haunted campaign last season, he only made 11 appearances, registering one assist.

Muller, commenting about his former club TSG Hoffenheim said that ‘in the back room’ TSG fancy Rutter. He adds that the former player ‘might return on loan’.

At the moment, after an encouraging pre-season, Rutter is out injured following Leeds’ 1-0 victory over Hearts. His injury has been described as a ‘core injury’

Thoughts…

Whilst you can never discount anything at Elland Road, the Whites sanctioning a loan move for Rutter would be a left-field move for Daniel Farke’s side.

He is the club’s record signing, a 21-year-old who has a further five years left on his contract, a contract that is due to run until the summer of 2028 – that length of a contract suggests that Leeds United see value in the Plescop-born youngster.

Yes, it is fair to say that Rutter has not hit the ground running at Elland Road; it was a tough season for him last year. He only saw 264 minutes of Premier League game time across his 11 appearances.

However, the class and ability that he showed in the Bundesliga for Hoffenheim – 11 goals and six assists across 57 appearances – would suggest he’d be able to transition easily to Championship competition
