Following what was an abysmal display from the Macedonian defender in his side’s last game against Brighton and Hove Albion, Robinson thinks Alioski’s time in Yorkshire is up.

After giving a needless penalty away in the game’s first half, Alioski, who was easily the worst player on the pitch, was soon dragged off at half-time by manager Marcelo Bielsa.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the season and with no signs of renewal, Alioski’s four years at Elland Road certainly look to be over.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said: “Alioski has been poor for the last few weeks. That’s the last time we’ll see him in a Leeds shirt.

“The noises he’s been making about going to Galatasaray haven’t gone down well with the Leeds fans and he’s been defensively poor all season.

“Teams have been targeting him all season. The game against Brighton, along with Arsenal away, was his poorest game for Leeds.

“The penalty was a stupid mistake, why he felt the need to wrap his arm around Danny Welbeck I don’t know.

“He’s not a left-back, which is why he wears the number 10 on his shirt, he’s a makeshift left-back and he’s been asked to do a job there all season. I think that’s over now.

“It’s an area that Leeds will have to invest in heavily in the summer.”

Alioski has so far featured in 32 matches, in all competitions, for Leeds United this season and has directly contributed to three goals along the way.

Turkish side Galatasaray are rumoured to have already agreed a pre-contract with the 29-year-old which would see him move at the end of the season for free.
