Pontus Jansson has reaffirmed his commitment to Leeds United despite the club’s failure to get promoted to the Premier League.
Speaking to Aftonbladet in his native Sweden, Jansson could not have been clearer about his desire to remain at Elland Road.
He said: “I’ve always said that taking the step up to the Premier League is my dream and I want to do it with Leeds. It is up to Leeds if there is an interest in negotiating. Until then I am 110 percent Leeds. I’ll be there until the day they don’t want me.”
Jansson will certainly not force an exit from Leeds then, and remains as committed as ever to getting the club back in the big time where it belongs.
Jansson’s declaration tops off a great week for Leeds, as Marcelo Bielsa also committed his future to the club for another season as the club gears up to redouble its efforts to get back into the Premier League once more.
That’s what Leeds need – a certainty around their key figures staying – which will then allow them to go out into the transfer market to get the players that Bielsa needs to go one better next season and get into the big time.
Jansson has made it clear that he wants to be part of it – just like Bielsa does – and that should be an enormous boost.
