The Sweden international has bagged two goals for the club in his 18 Championship games for Garry Monk’s side.
His previous goal came during the 1-1 draw against promotion rivals Aston Villa on Thursday evening where his headed effort scrabbled over the line.
The Whites will be hoping Jansson signs a permanent deal at the club and helps them gain promotion to the Premier League.
Monk’s side are currently sitting in a play-off spot heading into a Yorkshire derby against neighbours Rotherham on Monday afternoon.
The former Swansea manager has helped his team pick up 25 points from a possible 33 in recent months.
They will be hoping to add three more points against their neighbours who they beat 2-1 during their reverse fixture earlier on in the campaign.
