There have been plenty of rumours and speculation around Leeds United’s Ezgjan Alioski as his contract expires in the summer. The club are looking to keep hold of him and there has now been an update on these negotiations.
The latest on Alioski
According to Football Insider, Leeds are very hopeful they can get the North Macedonian to sign a new and improved contract within weeks.
He recently spoke out on his desire to remain at Leeds and clearly the feeling for him to stay is mutual from the likes of Marcelo Bielsa and Victor Orta. Leeds are so keen to keep him that they want the contract done before the January transfer window opens.
Big boost for Leeds
The player has received a lot of praise for his performances in the past from former England striker Kevin Phillips, who said: “He can change the game and if you start with him, he might be able to produce a bit of magic. Either way, he does not moan and every squad needs a player like that.”
Three of his nine appearances this year have been from the bench but Alioski has still managed to average 2.1 tackles per game (SofaScore).
Not only has his quality in defence helped the club in the Premier League this season, but his versatility is something that all squads would love to have. The 39-capped international has played in left and right midfield for Leeds as well as left-back.
Negotiations will of course now be in progress with Director of Football Orta and it will be a huge boost for Bielsa and Leeds if this can be sorted before January.
