Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has told the Swedish media his club needs to spend this summer. The 26-year-old is currently away with his national side ahead of their game against France on Friday night.

Speaking to Tv4, Jansson was asked about his future at Leeds United following recent speculation he could leave.

The Leeds United star has been linked with Southampton in recent weeks, and the Swede was quizzed whether he would be remaining with the West Yorkshire side. Jansson’s feeling is that the club needs to invest in quality players this summer in order to progress.

“The team I play for must invest properly,” said Jansson.

Much will be expected of Leeds United in the next window after the recent takeover at the club. New owner Andrea Radrizzani has installed Victor Orta as the club’s sporting director, and one of his first tasks was to bring in Dani Salas from Sevilla. Salas will help to front Leeds United’s scouting network, and target potential signings.
