Brentford’s Pontus Jansson has admitted he’s considering finishing his time in England and returning to Sweden.
The Bees signed the 30-year-old from Leeds United in 2019 and his current deal runs down in less than 12 months, with Brentford having an option to extend it by a further year.
Jansson started his career with Malmö FF and has been away from Sweden since 2014. He is now thinking of returning to his former club.
Thomas Frank’s man made these claims on podcast Football’s Coming Home and his comments are relayed by Aftonbladet.
“I feel great where I am now, but of course it gets closer and closer that I move back home,” the Brentford defender said.
Janne Andersson included the centre-back in Sweden’s Euro 2020 squad, but he finished the tournament without making an appearance.
The national team coach, however, has dropped the Brentford player from the squad for September’s international break.
Meanwhile, Jansson admitted he’s surprised that a club bigger than Sheffield United didn’t come calling for Robin Olsen in the summer. The goalkeeper joined the Championship side on a season-long loan deal from AS Roma.
“For me, Robin is one of the ten best goalkeepers in the world. I cannot understand that no bigger clubs than Sheffield United have wanted him. It’s a mystery to me,” he said.
“Sheffield United should consider themselves happy that they have got one of the best goalkeepers in the world.”
