Pontus Jansson aired his delight on Twitter on Wednesday evening after Leeds’ victory over Nottingham Forest.

The 25-year-old Sweden international made his return to the Yorkshire giants’ line-up in midweek after missing the previous two matches through a suspension.

The defensive rock partnered Kyle Bartley in the centre, playing the full 90 minutes in a match which was decided by two second half goals from Chris Wood and Souleymane Doukara.

Jansson was full of joy after the 2-0 victory at Elland Road, sharing his happiness on his personal Twitter account after another three points.

Jansson’s appearance against Nottingham Forest marked his 22nd for the club in all competitions after joining on loan from Torino in the summer.

The Yorkshire Evening Post have reported that the landmark appearance “should now allow” Leeds to tie the player up in a £3.5million permanent deal.

Fans will be eager for the defender to make the move a permanent one after becoming an instant success under manager Garry Monk.

Jansson has been pivotal to the club’s success this season and has played an important role in helping the club occupy their current third placing in the Championship table.
