A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from Leeds United Live on Facebook to discuss Luke Ayling.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

The post asks Leeds fans if they can see the 29-year-old continuing to play as a centre-back after playing the last five league games there prior to their recent defeat to Spurs, as Marcelo Bielsa spoke out on the defender’s future before Saturday’s game.

However, it just led many Whites fans to heap praise on the former Bristol City man.

The post also has a link included to an article with quotes from Marcelo Bielsa on Ayling, who seems to believe that he has impressed as both a full-back and a centre-back, so could that lead to him staying on as a centre-back?

It will be interesting to see.

Have you been impressed by Ayling this season?

Yes, he is playing very well

Yes, he is playing very well

No, he hasn't been that good

No, he hasn't been that good

This post continued to draw the attention of many Leeds fans who had nothing but praise for Ayling.

The 29-year-old has made 16 Premier League appearances this season in which he has earned an impressive average rating of 7.02.

This ranks him in fourth place in the Whites’ squad, so it is no wonder that so many Leeds fans and Bielsa have nothing but positive things to say for Ayling.
