The news was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page on Thursday and represents some good news for manager Thomas Christiansen after a poor run of results has seen his team slip to sixth in the Championship.
?? Leeds United are delighted to announce that defender Luke Ayling has signed a new contract with #LUFC

Ayling joined Leeds from Bristol City in 2016 for a fee of £800k and has since made 58 appearances across all competitions.
This is great news for Leeds. Ayling has quickly become a fan favourite at Elland Road and for good reason. His performances are consistently good and he’s a player that gives his all for the club. What Leeds need right now is some unity and hopefully this can provide a boost to morale at a time when spirits are definitely down.
