Lots of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter in fury after Phil Hay reported that Pontus Jansson is close to leaving the club for a fee of just £5.5m.
Offer on the table for Pontus Jansson from another English club and his exit from Leeds United set to be confirmed in the next 48hrs. Told the bid is £5.5m.https://t.co/yCHbQoNkoI

Hay reveals that there is an offer on the table from another English club, rumoured to be Brentford, and that the deal is set to be confirmed imminently.
Thogden challenged himself to DM 100 footballers on Instagram. Find out who replied in the video below…
Apparently, there have been issues behind the scenes with the Sweden international and boss Marcelo Bielsa, and Hay believes that if the Argentine wanted Jansson to stay, he would be staying at Elland Road – this exit is more to do with the 28-year-old’s attitude and personality.
The 6 foot 4 centre-back seems to be a well-liked figure at Leeds given the fury of the supporters in the tweets below, who seem outraged that this deal has been allowed to go through for such a small fee.
Jansson is one of Leeds’ best players and arguably one of the best in the Championship – he made the PFA Team of the Season for his efforts in 2018/19.
As a result, the supporters on Twitter seem devastated at the news and certainly haven’t reacted too well…
What an awful decision that is

I don’t care what’s gone on, you do not sell your best defender and consistently the best centre half in the league over the past few years, for 5.5 million.

5.5 million, is an insult. He’s been one of our best players for a couple of season now. Poor decision by the club.
