Leeds' all-time top Premier League goalscorer is Mark Viduka but how many did he score?

The 29-year-old, who is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, is currently on international duty with his country North Macedonia as he prepares to compete in the Euros.

However, Sunday’s match against West Bromwich Albion could turn out to be his last match for the Whites as his contract is set to expire at the end of June.

However, Orta revealed that Leeds have had recent talks with Alioski, and they have until the 30h of June to sort out a new contract.

He said: (36:52) “The contract [is] until the 30th of June, we’re are very happy with [Alioski]. He understands our position. I understand his position.

“I think the last two days, we [had] a good conversation face to face. Now [the season is finished], we [were able to have a conversation] face to face.

“He [needs] to decide about his own ideas because it’s not about Leeds it’s about his personal intention.”

Do you think that Alioski will sign a new contract?

Yes, it sounds positive

TIF Thoughts on Alisoki’s future…

It seems as if the Whites are holding meetings with Alioski in a bid to make him extend his stay in Leeds.

They have just over a month to sort out a new deal for Alioski, and judging by what Orta said, both sides seem to understand each other.

However, he has not signed a new deal yet, and until that happens then, his future at Elland Road is up in the air.

Leeds released their retained and released list on Thursday, and the club confirmed that Alioski had been offered a new contract and we will be watching on with interest to see if Alioski does sign a new deal or if he leaves.
