Sweden international defender Pontus Jansson has set his sights on landing a permanent move to Leeds United, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The 25-year-old, who has 10 international caps for his country, has scored one goal and provided one assist in 14 appearances in all competitions for the Championship outfit so far this season.

Jansson, who joined the Whites on a season-long loan deal from Serie A side Torino back in August, has been key in Garry Monk’s sides climb up the league table, in which Leeds now find themselves in fourth spot after their latest 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Elland Road.

When asked if the centre-half would like to put pen to paper on a permanent switch to Leeds, “Yes, sooner. I’m really happy to be here and Leeds have changed my football life again.

“I feel happy to play football and I feel the love for the sport. I’m thankful for that.

“I only know that I feel good and I’m glad to be here. Every day I’m happy to play football again. We’ll have to see what happens.

“We will see what’s happening, I’m very happy to be here, but going back to Torino, no.”
