The Swedish media have finally got some independent information on what’s happening with Pontus Jansson at Leeds United.
It comes from Aftonbladet, one of the country’s major newspapers, who yesterday said they’d tried to get comment from the player or his agent.
Jansson ‘can leave’ Elland Road because of an ‘economic situation’.
They put doubt on claims he’s been told to stay away from training, saying the reason he’s still in Sweden is at least partly because of participation in national matches last month.
Again making clear this is their own information, Aftonbladet state: ‘Leeds also want to sell Jansson as they are in need of balancing their economics to meet the league’s financial regulations.’
It’s explained that despite claims of interest from other English clubs, with Fulham and Sheffield United referenced due to claims in England, no deal is ‘close’ at the moment.
Pontus Jansson is ‘in the cold’ at Leeds United, but, as far as the media in his own country have it, it’s not because of a fall-out with Marcelo Bielsa, rather a need for money.
