The Ezgjan Alioski saga is set to run into the summer months, but former Leeds midfielder David Norris is still unsure whether the defender will be at the club next season.
Alioski has been a regular at Elland Road this term, but reportedly signed a pre-contract agreement with Turkish giants Galatasaray back in March, which appeared to mark the end of his Leeds career.
Will Bielsa leave Leeds?
The Macedonian, who’s now preparing for the Euro’s, featured in all but two of Leeds’ Premier League matches, scoring twice and claiming three assists, quickly establishing himself as Marcelo Bielsa’s first choice left-back following the departure of Barry Douglas on loan.
Despite his agreement with Galatasaray, the Yorkshire Evening Post believe that Bielsa wants to keep Alioski, although his deal at Elland Road expires in this summer, meaning there’s no guarantee he will extend his stay and is set to be released at the end of his contract next month.
And Norris told The Transfer Tavern that he’s still confused about the situation heading into Alioski’s final few weeks as a Leeds player:
“It looked at one point like he was definitely gone and now it is still a bit unclear. I still think it is unclear, even when I spoke to people, they’re not sure what is going to happen there.
“I think Dallas is great, does a job wherever he is put, but if Leeds want to make a statement they go out and get a proper left-back, so I expect either way for him to go out and get a left-back.”
