General view inside the stadium before the game - Elland Road

Leeds United recently added the Macedonian international to their ranks.

Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has posted a photograph on hios official Twitetr account as the Whites continue their pre-season preparations.

The Swedish centre-back is posing with some of the club's current players, including new addition Ezgjan Alioski, and the Macedonia international is expected to have a big impact during his first year at Elland Road.

The 25-year-old arrived from Siwss club Lugano earlier this month and a quick look at his last season proves what an exciting talent Leeds have on their hands.

Alioski scored 17 goals and provided 14 assists in 36 matches for Lugano last time out and if he can get anywhere near that return for Leeds in his debut campaign he will prove to be an instant hit.

New Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen would have been well aware of the Whites struggles in front of goal last season, with top-scorer Chris Wood the only player to consistently find the net and the club suffering as a result.

A late slump saw Leeds slip out of the play-off places with just a few matches remaining and it is up to Christiansen to ensure he goes one better than his predescor Garry Monk.

Alioski is just one of a number of new faces at Leeds this season, with the likes of Samu Saiz, Caleb Ekuban and Mateusz Klich all expected to play a significant role from the outset.
