Leeds defender Pontus Jansson is training with top-flight Swedish club Malmo FF.

The club confirmed on their official website that the 26-year-old is undertaking sessions at the home of his former side in order to keep fit for the up and coming international matches.

Sweden will take on France in a crucial World Cup qualifier on June 9, which will be followed up by a friendly match against Norway four days later.

Jansson recently concluded an impressive Championship campaign with Leeds where they narrowly missed out on a play-off spot by five points.

The Leeds star was a key member of Garry Monk’s side as they finished the season with a 1-1 draw against already-relegated Wigan on the last day of the Championship campaign.

He initially joined the Yorkshire club on a season-long loan from Italian side, Torino, with the club confirming in February that he has agreed a permanent deal with the Elland Road outfit.

Over the course of the season, Jansson formed a strong partnership with Kyle Bartley, who was another loanee at the club.

The duo were instrumental to the club’s strong home form which saw them secure a number of impressive wins against the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Derby and Brighton.

During his time at Malmo, Jansson made 128 appearances for his boyhood club, including representing his home country on 12 occasions.
