It’s never easy at Leeds United we all know that. The prime examples are here and now. No news on Garry Monk, a fight on our hands for Kyle Bartley and a bit of confusion and a mess over Pontus Jansson and his move from Torino. Hopefully some words from Italian journalist Gianluca Sartori of Toro News.

Sartori says Torino, “has already initiated the dispute before the FIFA Players Status Committee, complaining about blatant violations of close agreements on the signing of the player,” 

He goes on to say that the reason for the dispute is as follows, “the formula of the agreement provided a loan with [a]redemption obligation set at about 3.5 million pounds (just over 4 million euros).”

The next part is the most important part as far as Leeds United fans are concerned. He said that Torino are not looking to stall or block the deal, just resolve. (Torino) “hope for a quick resolution of the dispute, which could see Leeds pay the due [amount]and the player to stay at Elland Road.”

The news will be music to the ears of Leeds fans who have seen it all before and losing Jansson isn’t an option. The Swedish international defender has been a revelation since arriving from Italian side Torino where he was considering his position in football through injury. The fans and Jansson have a wonderful relationship that will only grow when he becomes a Leeds player on July 1st.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
