Burnley are the latest club to be credited with interest in the Leeds United star, after West Ham United.
Leeds United’s Pontus Jansson is being eyed by Burnley, according to the Sun on Sunday (April 22nd, Goals page seven).
West Ham are also credited with interest in the Leeds centre-back, although Burnley are a new name on his list of admirers.
The Clarets twice raided Elland Road last summer, and a reunion with Charlie Taylor and Chris Wood across the Pennines – not to mention the prospect of European football next season, something West Ham cannot offer – could appeal to Jansson.
Burnley have made it through the campaign with only three recognised centre-backs in Ben Mee, James Tarkowski and Kevin Long.
And Jansson – who the report claims is also on the radar of clubs in Turkey and France – would be a welcome addition to Sean Dyche’s side.
It is likely that Leeds will demand a substantial fee for the World Cup bound Swede, who signed a new five-year deal with them earlier this season.
Can Burnley see off West Ham to add another Leeds player?
