Steven Naismith and Pontus Jansson (L) in action
Leeds United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the signing of Pontus Jansson.
As announced on Leeds’s official website on Thursday morning, Leeds have secured the services of Jansson on a season-long loan deal from Italian club Torino.
Jansson is a 25-year-old central defender who was part of the Sweden squad for the 2016 European Championship in France in the summer.
The former Malmo FF centre-back failed to make a huge impact at Serie A club Torino, but he could prove to be an important signing for Leeds.
The defender, who joined Torino from Malmo in 2014, has managed to make just 16 appearances in Serie A.

It's got to be Bartley and jansson as starting cbs for me, see how they do for now, as the other combos don't seem to be solid enough #lufc— corbywhite (@gandalflufc) August 18, 2016
Pontus Jansson signs, "I'm an aggressive defender and I always give more than 100%" - now that's the kind of centre back we need. #lufc— Odd Tremorz (@OddTremorz) August 18, 2016
Bridcutt and Jansson could be the difference on Saturday, starting to like the look of this squad, if they can get firing who knows.. #lufc— Joel Anderson (@JoelAnd75859295) August 18, 2016
My only concern with Jansson after watching his footage is that he'll make a Bellusci esque mistake and fans will make him a scapegoat #lufc— Gary LUFC (@Gary_Calter) August 18, 2016
Pontus Jansson signs for Leeds. Happy with this. A big dominating leader at the back. Build from the back. Let's get our first win. #lufc— Lee Stacey (@lstacey1992) August 18, 2016
