Leeds United are preparing a new contract offer for utility player Ezgjan Alioski, according to Football Insider.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been excellent this season so far, moving up to third in the Premier League last night after their 3-0 thrashing of previously unbeaten Aston Villa, in which Alioski started at left-back (Sky Sports).
Ezgjan Alioski set for new contract
The 28-year-old North Macedonia international is now into the final year of his current deal at Elland Road. He has featured 138 times for the Whites during his time at the club, playing in a variety of positions.
Regarded by some as a cult hero at Leeds, Alioski is now set to be offered a new contract by the Yorkshire club. Football Insider have broken the news of Leeds’ plans to push for a new deal, saying that the natural winger is very much a key member of Bielsa’s squad.
The correct decision to offer Alioski a new deal?
Despite only making his second start of the season on Friday night against Villa, Alioski has featured in the majority of Leeds’ games this term, as per Transfermarkt.
A massive part of Bielsa’s side over the last few seasons, it should come as no shock to fans of the club that a new deal is on the cards. Given his versatility, Alioski is the type of player that any club in England’s top flight would likely appreciate.
