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.
