The dust has barely settled on Pontus Jansson’s Leeds departure but he has already been snapped back alongside one of his former teammates.
Ezgjan Alioski posted an image of the pair on Instagram, which was consequently shared on Twitter by one member of the Leeds faithful.

Considering Jansson left due to supposed attitude problems, this image will likely come as somewhat of a surprise, especially because of the manner in which he left.
Understandably it provoked quite the reaction from supporters with plenty of fans flooding to comment on what they had seen.
Some fans joked about Leeds’ transfer business, as one suggested they’d probably signed him for £15m. Another individual said he would be coming back on loan because of the shortage of central defenders at the club.
One fan stated that Marcelo Bielsa would be fuming with Alioski whilst a further supporter simply said that it broke their heart.
However, that wasn’t enough to prevent the club from selling him as the 28-year-old moved on for a measly fee of £5.5m.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
We’ve probably signed him for £15m

So the Brentford deal, Pontus gets sold , only to come back to Leeds on loan for the season, coz we are sure as hell light at the back. I wish White well, but we needed another experienced CB in too.
