Reports in Sweden are that when asked what his plans for the future were, Jansson replied he would see what direction the club were going in next season, and he will listen to the plans. The Swedish defender signed a new 5-year-deal this season so it would command some big negotiations for Leeds to think about selling, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

Jansson was convinced at the start of the season that this was to be the year Leeds United returned to the Premier League. He then watched Chris Wood and Rob Green leave before nobody stepped into the shoes of Kyle Bartley. He started the season very well, a tweet from him regarding Liam Cooper after the Sunderland game made you wonder if the captain was indeed the man to step up this season but that soon became apparent, and Jansson has been hobbling along ever since. The Swedish international hasn’t had a good season at all, with the exception of the first couple of months and the odd games here and there, consistency wide he simply hasn’t got going since the bad run started all the way back last year.

For him to come out and say that he will wait and see what the club are going to do isn’t anything out of the ordinary for a footballer but after signing a long-term deal and having a poor season you would like to think that Jansson would stick around. We know he was looking to buy a house in the area so we can probably put some of this down to the Swedish press translating it slightly differently as well as him saying something along these lines. Pablo Hernandez has also spoken to Paul Heckingbottom about what the club is looking to do next season. The Spanish playmaker is currently in contract negotiations with the club over a new deal with his current deal only running until the summer.

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.
