Leeds: Ezgjan Alioski ‘officially’ begins talks for Galatasaray move

Leeds: Ezgjan Alioski ‘officially’ begins talks for Galatasaray move -Leeds United

Leeds United defender Ezgjan Alioski has again been tipped to join Galatasaray at the end of the season, as his time at Elland Road is now surely reaching its conclusion.

The Lowdown: Alioski set to leave

The 29-year-old has been a good servant for the Whites, making a total of 170 appearances and even being hailed as ‘brilliant’ by former England striker Kevin Phillips.

Alioski has chipped in with two goals and three assists in the Premier League this season, but his future looks set to belong elsewhere.

The left-back is out of contract at Leeds in the summer and Galatasaray have been continually linked with snapping him up.

The Latest: Fresh update emerges

According to Fanatik [via Sport Witness], the Turkish giants still ‘want to sign‘ Alioski, with the North Macedonian top of their summer wish-list and talks now ‘officially‘ beginning over a deal.

It is claimed that the player has already spoken to manager Fatih Terim, as he approaches what will finally be his last-ever Leeds game this weekend, at home to West Brom.

The Verdict: Good move for all parties

A move to Galatasaray appears to be a good move for all concerned, with Alioski clearly happy to take on a fresh challenge and Leeds willing to move him on.

At 29, he isn’t getting any younger and signing and out-and-out left-back, such as Ajax’s much-linked Nicolas Tagliafico, could make the Whites an even more balanced outfit.

Alioski has undoubtedly been a positive influence overall at Leeds, but it is time to move him on, especially following last weekend’s incident with Burnley’s Dwight McNeil looming over his head while the FA decide how to react.

In other news, Leeds have been linked with a move for an exciting South American player. Find out who it is here.
