Leeds United fans are not happy with news coming out regarding Gjanni Alioski and his future away from the club.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of the campaign, and even though head coach Marcelo Bielsa has said that the club would be willing to extend his deal if he wanted to stick around for another year, he could be coming to the end of his time at Elland Road. According to a report from Turkish outlet Milliyet (via TEAMtalk), the defender, valued at £3.6m on Transfermarkt, is ‘very close’ to joining Turkish side Galatasaray on a free transfer come the end of the campaign.

Given the club in question, and the relationship that Leeds United have with them based on previous meetings, there was certainly plenty of animosity on social media about the links, with some fans more or less willing to wash their hands of him if he decided to go down that path:

&8220;If this is true then I’m very disappointed in him”

“One way to ruin your Leeds legacy”
“Can forgive almost anything but not that”
“Anywhere but there”
“Honestly I don’t begrudge him a move after what he’s done at Leeds but not to them. He will tarnish any relationship he has with the fans.”
“Every Leeds fan loves Alisoki and would love him to stay. However, if he leaves for Galatasaray then he will be forgotten about at Leeds and going there is probably the worst way to end your time at Leeds.”

“Couldn’t write it”

Do you think Alioski deserves a new contract?

Yes, he has done well

Yes, he has done well

No, let him go

No, let him go

Whether or not something like this will sway his decision over joining them in the future, we’ll just have to wait and see, but it would certainly be one way to tarnish your relationship with some of the supporters based on these comments.
