West Ham manager David Moyes addressed the media yesterday ahead of his side's clash with Stoke City at the London Stadium on Monday night, and responded to questions asking him whether he is interested in signing Leeds centre-back Pontus Jansson, as quoted by Football.London.
The Hammers are thought to be keen on signing the Sweden international in the summer, with TEAMtalk claiming that Moyes is lining up a £12 million swoop for the Whites defender.
Jansson has established himself as somewhat of a cult hero at Elland Road since joining the club initially on loan from Torino way back in the summer of 2016.
The 27-year-old made his deal a permanent one in the summer of 2017, and he is widely considered to be one of Paul Heckingbottom's most important players.
His fine displays for Leeds have obviously not gone unnoticed, though.
Moyes spoke to reporters during his pre-match press conference, and responded when asked if he is interested in signing Jansson, as quoted by Football.London:
"No. Even if I did I would never say, never talk about players at any other clubs."
Jansson has stated many times that he is happy at Elland Road, but it will be interesting to see if his whether his stance will change if West Ham do actually come in with a concrete offer for his services in the summer.
