Leeds fans fear the worst as Jansson is linked with West Brom

Leeds United centre-back Pontus Jansson is a transfer target for West Bromwich Albion according to Swedish news outlet Expressen.

The colossal Swede joined Leeds in 2016 on a one year loan, then made his move permanent to the Yorkshire club last summer.

During his loan spell, his partnership with Kyle Bartley appeared indestructible and the central defender quickly became a cult hero among Leeds fans.

Last season, he made 42 appearances but didn’t match his performances from the season before without the impressive Bartley alongside him.

Now the former Malmo player is a transfer target for West Brom with Darren Moore looking to rebuild the squad as they prepare for life in the Championship.

Jansson is valued at £5.4million on Transfermarkt and the World Cup player will be a big loss with Leeds having so far made just one signing this summer.

Leeds fans have been reacting to the rumours on social media and here’s a snapshot of what they’ve been saying.
