Alioski-Leeds transfer news expected 'very soon' after Thursday development - pundit

Ezgjan Alioski may soon make a final decision on his Leeds United future after his North Macedonia side were knocked out of the Euros.

That is according to ex-Whites shot-stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 29-year-old’s contract situation at Elland Road.

Football Insider revealed on 4th June the left-sided player had been offered a new and improved deal.

But his current contract expires at the end of the month and no official update has been forthcoming.

Alioski‘s North Macedonia were the first team to be knocked out of the Euros when they lost 2-1 to Ukraine on Thursday, 17th June.

And Kenny predicts that the left-sided player will soon make a contract decision now that the Euros are no longer a distraction.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “I’m surprised this hasn’t been sorted before he went away.

“From his point of view, why not it get sorted beforehand? What’s to say he doesn’t get a 12-month injury and then that could leave him without a club and a job.

“It was quite a high risk to take. Now that they’re knocked out, he doesn’t need to concentrate on the Euros.

“It’s out of the way now and if he’s going to stay at Leeds or not, he needs to get it sorted.

“So I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard something from him very soon. “

Alioski signed for Leeds from FC Lugano in 2017.

He has gone on to feature 171 times for the club.
