In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former footballer and current pundit Carlton Palmer has made a claim about Ezgjan Alioski’s possible signing of a new contract at Leeds United.
It would be a surprise to see the 28-year-old leave Elland Road at the end of this season, as he has been a regular on Marcelo Bielsa’s side so far this season, having achieved eight appearances in the Premier League.
Would you be disappointed if Alioski went free?
He was also a pillar of the Argentine team last season in the Championship, making 39 entries, in which he contributed five goals and five assists, was clearly a large part of the Whites’ promotion to the top flight.
However, Palmer has suggested to FFC that Leeds should not rush to a decision on Alioski’s new contract, saying:
“I think if he continues to do what he does, maybe [Leeds should offer him a new deal] Yes. I don’t think you should rush to do it. “
Palmer seems to suggest that Alioski should continue his role as a multi-talented member of Bielsa’s team, who can be trusted to play in several different positions, so there is no reason why the Yorkshire club should not offer him a new contract.
However, contrary to what Palmer thinks, Leeds may need to “ rush to do it ”, considering that the 28-year-old will be able to negotiate with foreign clubs in the January transfer window, in order to be signed. in a free transfer. at the end of the season.
During his time in Leeds, Alioski has contributed quite impressively 20 goals and 16 assists in 142 games, so it would be a shame if they didn’t give him a new contract and thus get stuck with a free transfer in the summer with Leeds not even getting a transfer fee for it.
And, in other news … Leeds made an unforgivable mistake releasing the midfielder at 16, he is now captain of the PL
