Leeds fans react on Twitter to Gjanni Alioski contract reports

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports from The Athletic over the weekend claiming the Whites have opened talks with Gjanni Alioski over a new contract.

Alioski’s deal expires at the end of the season. And some may have wondered whether there was any chance that he may not be offered fresh terms having played more of a peripheral role since the start of last season.

He started 44 league games during Marcelo Bielsa’s first year in charge. However, he has made just 25 league starts since last summer.

Fortunately for those keen to see the North Macedonia international stay, it appears that Bielsa wants the 28-year-old to remain within his squad.

The Athletic reported over the weekend that talks over a new deal have begun. And while it was noted that discussions are in the early stages, it was claimed that an agreement is expected.

The news has largely gone down incredibly well amongst Leeds fans on social media. Alioski is a cult-hero at Elland Road. And he is also an incredibly important member of the squad.

He may not be a regular starter, but he provides cover in a number of positions. And when he has stepped in in the Premier League, he has often impressed.

He was excellent against Arsenal on Sunday. And his performance in the win at Aston Villa earlier this season was outstanding.

There are some who are less convinced by the club’s move. But it appears that the large majority of fans are delighted to hear that Alioski is seemingly set to extend his stay.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to the reports…
