Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has told the Swedish media he wants to remain at the club. The Swede joined Leeds United in the summer on loan from Torino, and now he’s played twenty games for the Championship side the move can become permanent.

Speaking to, Jansson was asked about his plans for 2017 and his future at Leeds United. The 25-year-old confirmed he’s happy at Leeds United, and that he wants to stay where he is.

The Sweden international went on to say he hopes his permanent switch to the Elland Road club can be sorted out soon.

“I really enjoy working at Leeds and I feel that this is where I want to be right now, so I hope it resolves itself as soon as possible,” said the Leeds United loanee.

Jansson’s appearance in Leeds United’s 3-0 win over Rotherham United on Monday has now activated the clause for him to become an outright player at the club.

Leeds United now have the option to purchase the central defender for £3.4m from Torino with reports discussions are already underway with regards to the player’s personal terms.
