Daniel Farke is willing to offer Leeds United defender Luke Ayling a one-year extension to his current contract.
The 32-year old has been a long term servant of the club, playing over 247 games since joining from Bristol City in 2016.
Last season, Ayling signed a one-year extension at Elland Road. A report from TEAMtalk says Daniel Farke will keep Ayling beyond next summer. Farke sees Ayling’s leadership as crucial to the club.
The defender has been good this season, and has continued to be a regular in the defence – proving a more reliable option than the current depth in the team.
This news comes just after Paul Robinson urged the club to give Ayling a new deal after his start to the season (via MOT Leeds news):
“It would be fantastic to see Ayling rewarded with a new contract for his service to the club. The way that he’s played over recent years, his leadership qualities that he still has in the dressing room.
“To have that long-term would be good. If the club reward him with a new contract it would be fantastic. But for him on a personal level is if he wants pastures new at this stage in his career. Is there something else that he wants to pursue?”
