Leeds United welcome star player back tomorrow – posts selfie

Pontus Jansson rejuvenated Leeds United last season, coming in and playing his first game as the Whites slumped to a 1-0 home defeat to neighbours Huddersfield.

That defeat in Jansson’s first game for Leeds, after arriving on loan from Torino, saw the club sink into the relegation places. 11 games later and Jansson was a part of the Leeds United side that climbed up the table to the play-off places, where they stayed for 26 games and 142 days.

Jansson plays with his heart on his sleeve, a style of play that is certain to get the Leeds United crowd on your side. It was crunching tackle after crunching tackle, booming clearance after booming clearance, timely interception after timely interception as the rangy Swede formed a solid partnership with Swansea loanee Kyle Bartley. It was a partnership at the heart of defence that Whites fans had been wishing to have for quite a while.

He further endeared himself to the Elland Road crowd when signing a £3.5 million, three-year deal in February that has kicked in today, converting his initial loan deal from Torino into a permanent deal.

With some Leeds fans wondering when the talismanic Swede will be coming back to the fold – the answer is in the following tweet from the new Mrs Asa Jansson – formerly known as Åsa Thornell.
