Ezgjan Alioski hasn’t rejected a new deal with Leeds United but his future remains up in the air, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post‘s Graham Smyth on Twitter.
The left-back is now in his fourth season at Elland Road, having joined from Lugano back in the summer of 2017.
Alioski hasn’t always found regular football easy to come by in the Premier League this season, however, starting 18 of his side’s 27 matches, and hasn’t played a full 90 minutes since the 2-0 win at home to Crystal Palace in early February.
Smyth provides key Alioski update
The 29-year-old’s current Leeds deal expires at the end of this season, meaning his future is now very much up in the air for the time being.
Taking to Twitter to respond to a question regarding Alioski’s future, Smyth admitted that the North Macedonia international has not rejected a new deal, contrary to some reports, but that he is yet to commit his future to the Whites:
Hasn't rejected an offer as far as I'm aware. Nor has he signed it, however.

Transfer Tavern take
Leeds supporters may be split on whether or not they want Alioski to extend his stay at Elland Road, but it may not be a bad thing, in terms of squad depth.
Will Kalvin Phillips leave Leeds United?
He may not be a key man for Bielsa moving forward, but he is an experienced figure who is capable of doing a job when required in multiple positions.
On the flip side, the emergence of youngster Leif Davis could mean Alioski becomes even more surplus to requirements, giving an excuse to move him on.
