Leeds defender Pontus Jansson has stated that he is waiting for owner Massimo Cellino to offer him a permanent deal – and fans on Twitter have urged the club to make the move.
The 25-year-old has been in excellent form since joining on loan from Torino in the summer and he celebrated his first goal for Leeds on Saturday during their stunning 3-2 victory against Norwich.
Jansson’s loan runs for the entirety of the season but the Sweden international has vowed he wants to stay beyond next summer.
“Seriously, that’s the only thing that I want now. I want to be here and to make a permanent deal with Leeds,” said Jansson, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.
There is no surprise that the Elland Road faithful want Jansson to sign for the club on a permanent basis.
But there are those who have become increasingly worried as they feel Premier League clubs will come knocking for his services.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
@PhilHayYEP Have they not done that yet?! I'd be amazed if a PL team doesn't move for him soon.
