Leeds United director of football Victor Orta has been speaking on the latest edition of The Athletic’s The Phil Hay Show about Ezgjan Alioksi’s future at Elland Road.
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
No, he will still leave
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.
