One of the topics of conversation that has been doing the rounds on social media recently is regarding the Pontus Jansson situation at Leeds United. Many have had their say, today it was head coach Garry Monk’s turn.

Since his arrival at Elland Road, tasting defeat in his first match against Huddersfield Town, the way that Pontus Jansson has endeared himself to the Leeds United faithful is nothing if not remarkable. His all-action displays, the way that he’s helped bring a certain steel and stability to the heart of the defence, and the way that he interacts with the crowd has made him a firm favourite in LS11 and beyond.

Unfortunately, the level of displays that the Swede has shown have, allegedly, interested other sides with a handful of Premier League sides said to be keeping tabs on the 6ft 5in Swede, according to media reports such as those in the Express and on the Sky Sports website.

Fans have also been getting into a bit of a lather over reports in the Swedish publication Kvallsposten where his agent Martin Dahlin said: “He has set his sights on playing in the Premier League next season, that much I can say. But right now he focuses on Leeds.”

Dahlin expanded on the ‘interest’ growing in Pontus Jansson saying that there is interest but he was staying tight-lipped, mentioning: “That said, interest is high but you will not get me to go to specific clubs.

With Leeds fans reacting in some instances in a rabid manner, despite Jansson having signed a permanent deal with the club on February 2, Leeds United boss Garry Monk moved to allay fears somewhat.

Responding to questions from Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Lee Sobot, Monk said the following about the Jansson situation and growing rumours of potential interest leading to the possible departure of the popular Swede.

Leeds United face a make-or-break final three games of the regular season where they will be looking to win every point in order to give themselves the best opportunity of being part of the Championship play-off picture.

What do you think? How will it all end for Leeds United over their last three games?
