Ezgjan Alioski sends Twitter message after masterclass for North Macedonia
Leeds United defender Ezgjan Alioski has been the talk of Elland Road for months now, with his future still not resolved.
With his contract coming to an end in the next month, it is possible that he could still leave West Yorkshire on a free transfer.
Turkish outlet Karar recently reported that Alioski had met with the Whites to make his final decision after improved terms were offered by the club.
Despite this, Alioski is still preparing for the EUROs and played a massive part in the 4-0 win over Kazakhstan on Friday evening, scoring the opener.
The defender took to his personal Twitter account to celebrate the win, and he doesn’t appear to be a player worrying about his future at the club level.
“Finish with friendly games,” he wrote. “Focus now for the EUROs.”

That is exactly what Alioski had against the 10-men of Kazakhstan.
Despite starting the rout by smashing home his penalty in the first-half, the Whites Duracell Bunny could have been involved much more, after laying two golden chances on a plate that were missed late on.
Marcelo Bielsa has made it no secret that he would like Alioski to stay at Elland Road, whether that will happen though is another story.
Leeds and Victor Orta are still going to sign a new left-back either way, and it could be the possible drop in minutes that is working against us.
Alioski will want to start every week, but even being involved as a rotation option as we hunt for Europe in this relentless style should be enough.
There will be movement in the next three weeks, and we will find out whether Alioski stays or goes, the EUROs certainly complicate things.
