Alex Mowatt’s current contract with Leeds United runs out at the end of next season.
Leeds United youngster Alex Mowatt has not been approached by the club regarding a new deal, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.
“Mowatt, meanwhile, has not received any contact from United about extending his contract,” states the report in The Yorkshire Evening Post.
Mowatt is one of the most talented and most promising young midfielders in the Championship, but he was not in great form last season.
The Englishman scored two goals and created 28 chances in 33 Championship appearances for Leeds during the 2015-16 campaign.
The youngster had a pass accuracy of 81% and a shot accuracy of 48%, and won 17 headers, 12 dribbles and 21 tackles.
Mowatt is a very good player, and perhaps it would be wise of Leeds to try to tie him down to a long-term contract.
The youngster may not have been at his best last season, but there can be no denial that he is genuinely talented.
Leeds endured a disappointing 2015-16 Championship campaign, but under new manager Garry Monk, the West Yorkshire outfit will be aiming to finish in the playoffs next season.
