Full-back to remain at Elland Road.
Leeds United are delighted to announce the club has exercised an option to extend Luke Ayling’s contract beyond this season.
The full-back’s original deal was due to expire at the end of the current season, but the club has triggered a clause in his contract, automatically keeping him at Elland Road until the summer of 2024.
The 31-year-old is vice-captain of the Whites and has proved to be a fan favourite since joining from Bristol City in the summer of 2016.
He has gone on to amass 237 games over that period and has already written himself into the history books as one of the club’s promotion heroes in the 2019/20 season.
A leader and influential figure on and off the pitch, Ayling has been in fine form for the Whites over recent matches and has made 17 appearances for the Whites this season in all competitions.
Director of football Victor Orta said: “Luke fully deserves his extension, he remains a key member of the team and his impact off the field is immeasurable.
“Luke is a leader, as well as being a top Premier League footballer.”
Ayling said: “All my focus is on Leeds United staying in the Premier League this season, but it goes without saying that I love this football club and I am delighted to extend my stay into next year.
“I want to thank our fans for their continued support as well as my teammates and everyone connected with the club.”
