Gjanni Alioski could follow the likes of Charlie Cresswell and Pascal Struijk by signing a new Leeds United contract, with The Athletic reporting that talks over a deal are underway.
Alioski’s future has been a talking point for a little while. The North Macedonia international’s contract expires next summer, according to The Athletic.
He has played a more peripheral role this season. The 28-year-old has started just three Premier League games, and has tended to come in when the Whites have lost players to injury.
So that may have left some supporters wondering whether his future could lie elsewhere.
However, The Athletic are now reporting that early discussions have begun. And it is suggested that an agreement is expected.
TBR View: Boost for Leeds to keep Alioski
Alioski may not be one of the first names on the team sheet currently, but it would still be a big boost for Leeds to keep him beyond the end of the season.
The wide-man – who currently earns £15,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – brings a lot to Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
He appears to be willing to play absolutely anywhere. And he has already shown this term that he is capable of colossal performances at the highest level.
His display at left-back against Aston Villa was outstanding. And it should perhaps be little surprise if that performance was the catalyst for Leeds deciding that they needed to keep Alioski beyond next summer.
