Leeds United: Fans plead with Ezgjan Alioski to stay

Image for Leeds United: Fans plead with Ezgjan Alioski to stay

Ezgjan Alioski turned in a solid performance as Leeds United won at Fulham on Friday night and moved to within two points of the top half. 

The left-back earned a rating of 7.1 from SofaScore, the fourth-best of Leeds’ outfielders.

It was only bettered by goalscorers Raphinha and Patrick Bamford and winger Jack Harrison, who laid-on an assist.

He made three clearances, four tackles and lost only two of his seven ground duels.

After the match, he tweeted: “Amazing feeling. What a win.”

The North Macedonian international has featured in all but two of Leeds’ Premier League matches this season.

And yet, his future is uncertain.

Is Alioski’s four-year Leeds career coming to an end?

He is a little over three months from the expiry of his contract.

Turkish media outlets Fotomac and Milliyet have reported that he could sign an agreement with Galatasaray.

Alioski joined Leeds ahead of the 2017/18 season from Swiss side FC Lugano for a fee of £2.25million.

The 29-year-old, who is valued at £3.6 million (as per Transfermarkt), has made 162 appearances for the club, scoring 22 goals and assisting 16 in that time.

Leeds fans flock to Alioski tweet

“Great game Gjanni, please sign a new contract with us, you belong here.”


“Mad as a hatter, makes the most bizarre decisions, just play anywhere on pitch you want. Yet still love the man.”


“Played great Gjanni, sign a new contract with us, we want you here, we need you and we love you, you are one of us, important on and off the pitch”


“Yes Gjanni! As always love your commitment and work rate, please don’t go to that team, you’ll ruin your legacy with us – we want you to be one of our promotion heroes forever”


“Sign the contract man. We need more Gjanicam”


“Great work – what a team player you are. Legend for me!”


One fan even mentioned the fact Alioski may be thinking of moving, which could relate to this report.

“I can’t believe your thinking of moving from Leeds united at this time… Who’s turned your head as you can’t tell me your not happy… I wish you well and fear you may well regret it down the line.”


“Well played, sign that contract and continue to be a Leeds Legend.”
