Ayling joined Leeds from Bristol City in 2016. He has since established himself as a key player for the club and has made 116 appearances for the Whites.
The defender is yet to feature this season having undergone ankle surgery in the summer.
The right-back has featured three times for the Under-23s in recent weeks and could return to the squad for Tuesday’s Championship clash against West Brom at Elland Road.
