The Whites were desperate to bring in a forward in the January transfer window and brought the 21-year-old from Hoffenheim for a club record transfer fee of £36m.
Since his arrival at Elland Road, Rutter has struggled to force his way into the side despite Leeds lacking goals and toiling on the pitch.
Rutter has featured 12 times for Leeds in all competitions and has yet to score a goal in Whites colours.
And off the pitch Rutter is struggling too, with the Frenchman not quickly picking up the English language; team-mates have tried to use a little French around him.
Rutter has his friend Illan Meslier at the club, but he is alone without his family and is struggling to settle.
It has been suggested that his Leeds team-mates are trying to help him on the training ground to get him settled.
Leeds have one game left in the Premier League this season and it remains to be seen whether Sam Allardyce will be using Rutter on Sunday in their crucial game against Tottenham Hotspur.
