Leeds United fans on Twitter have written off the rumours linking Pontus Jansson with a move to Fulham.
Reputable journalist Matt Law reported that the London club are very keen to sign the Swede, but United fans find it hard to believe that a player would want to swap Elland Road for Craven Cottage.
Many were baffled by the links with one fan asking: “Why on earth would he go to a smaller club in the same division?”
These Leeds supporters do seem to have a short memory. The last time Fulham were relegated they signed arguably their best player in Ross McCormack just a few weeks after he won the Championship golden boot, so it isn’t too far fetched that history could repeat itself here.
It remains to be seen whether or not this deal will be done or not, but many members of the fanbase are confident that it will not come to fruition.

Not a chance. Only leaving for the PL. Not to finish below Leeds this season.

Why on earth would he go to a smaller club in the same division with less chance of going up?
