Leeds: Pundit thinks Ezgjan Alioski will leave

Leeds: Pundit thinks Ezgjan Alioski will leave - Leeds United

Former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell believes Ezgjan Alioski’s time at Leeds United will come to an end this summer, following reports suggesting as much on Wednesday evening.

The Lowdown: Alioski’s future up in the air

It is expected to be a busy summer at Elland Road, with Marcelo Bielsa bringing in new signings and other players heading the other way.

Alioski is now officially a free agent, following the expiration of his contract on Wednesday, and it remains to be seen if he will sign a new deal.

A move to Galatasaray has been mooted, but he could also stay on and look to add to his tally of 22 goals in 171 appearances for Leeds.

The Latest: Pundit tips left-back to leave

Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell claimed Alioski would likely leave this summer, assuming Barcelona left-back Junior Firpo comes in, as expected:

“It can go one of two ways. It will either kick him on to sign a new contract and fight for his place or he more likely will go, ‘Right, I’m off.’

“I know he is not a left-back but that was his slot, let’s be honest. If I am Firpo, I am coming to Leeds to play every week so it would suggest to me that Alioski’s time is up.

“The club have waited and waited and waited. He had a decent Euros as well so he probably feels he can move on.”

The Verdict: Right time to move on

Alioski has been an excellent servant for Leeds, not only providing quality and versatility but also proving to be a big character in the dressing room.

Despite this, it makes sense for him to move on ahead of next season, with a more natural, younger left-back in Firpo bringing a freshness to the team.

At 29, Alioski is unlikely to get any better – he may regress, if anything – and taking him off the wage bill could free up funds for other new signings.
