PONTUS JANSSON has penned a five-year deal with Leeds United.

The news comes less than four months after he completed a £3.5million move from Torino.

Leeds fought off Premier League clubs interested in the player.

And the deal extension comes in spite of the fact that the Swedish central defender has not been in the best of form lately.

Jansson was dropped for last Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship 3-0 win at Bristol City.

And Jansson is fully expected to miss out to Liam Cooper and Matthew Pennington for Friday’s game against Sheffield United at Elland Road.

But for all this he was scouted heavily by Premier League clubs during his loan from Torino last season and remains a player of enormous potential.

Jansson has made 47 appearances for Leeds

Jansson told LUTV: “I’m really happy of course. It’s felt like a second home since day one.

“We came from Italy where it was a little bit tougher, a different type of culture and a different type of football. England is quite similar to Sweden and Leeds were fantastic.

“Everyone has been good to me and when I started to play good on the pitch, I got love from the fans.

“I’m really pleased to be here. I hope I can give something back now.”

Jonsson has scored three goals in 47 appearances for Leeds in all competitions.
He is one of a number of first-team players to extend their deals with the Championship side.
