Pontus Jansson has joined Leeds United on a season-long loan deal from Torino.
Jansson has joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal from Serie A outfit Torino, as announced on the Championship club’s official website on Thursday.
The 25-year-old centre-back has arrived at Elland Road with a good reputation, and TV4 journalist Lundh has backed the Sweden international to prove to be a good signing for the former Premier League outfit.
“I think that Leeds have done a sensationally good acquisition in getting Pontus Jansson on a loan at this time,” Lundh told BBC Radio Leeds.
“I definitely think that he will step into the starting XI and I think he will be a good addition for Leeds United.
“The way I feel that Garry Monk wants Leeds to play, I think he is a good addition because he knows how to handle the ball and he also has this advantage of Pep Clotet.”
Jansson was named in the Sweden squad for the 2016 European Championship in France in the summer.
The former Malmo defender is a very good player, and he should enhance the quality of the current Leeds squad.
Leeds, who have yet to win a game in the Championship this campaign, will take on Sheffield Wednesday away from home at the Hillsborough Stadium in the league on Saturday afternoon.
