‘Cash in, move on’ – Pontus Jansson’s future at Leeds United: Opinion



Everyone at Leeds United will be coming to terms with the prospect of another season in the Championship, having seen Marcelo Bielsa’s side fall out of the automatic promotion race, before falling short in the play-off semi-final against Derby County.

In the wake of such disappointment, the future of the manager and squad has been subject to much speculation, with fans waiting nervously to hear who stays and who goes.

A player who always wore his heart on his sleeve was 28-year-old defender Pontus Jansson.

The centre-back was a consistent figure at the back for Leeds this season, and his commanding displays earned him many plaudits throughout the campaign.

But will Jansson stick around at Leeds next season?

We discuss……..

Gary Hutchinson

“No, I also don’t think it’s a bad thing.

“Some changes have to be made and there’s better than Jansson out there.

“He’s an average Championship defender for me, Leeds need better.

“Cash in, move on.”

Alfie Burns

“Not this summer.

“He’s given three really committed years to Leeds, but Jansson will want to play Premier League football at the age he’s at.

“There’s no guarantee that Leeds will even be there in 12 months time, so Jansson will be having doubts.

“In truth, he will probably leave with most people’s blessing.”

Toby Wilding

“I think he stays.

“The Swede’s reaction to that play-off defeat to Derby told you all you need to know about how much he cares about the club, and you feel he will be determined to put that right next season.

“He has three years left on his current deal at the club meaning there is no need for Leeds to let him go, but if things haven’t changed this time next year, he may feel he needs to get a chance in the Premier League while he still can.”

Louie Chandler

“Of course.

“He may have had a tricky end to the season but Jansson remains a fan favourite at Elland Road and I believe he still loves the club.

“I don’t think a move away is out of the question but there is definitely a good chance he will stay.”
