A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react to reports coming from Swedish outlet Expressen this week which have suggested that West Brom have been in contact with the Whites regarding a move for Pontus Jansson.
Jansson has endured a fairly mixed time at Leeds in truth. He was superb for the large majority of his first season, but his form seemed to dip slightly in the final weeks as the Whites ultimately squandered a brilliant chance of reaching the play-offs.
And after a bright start to last season, his form seemed to take another dip. He was certainly not the only player who disappointed last term by any means, but Jansson is one of the members of the squad that certainly has the capability and quality to turn a situation around.
He reminded his critics of what he is capable of when he got to make his one start at the World Cup as he helped Sweden see off South Korea on their way to a quarter-final defeat to England.
Expressen is now reporting that West Brom are keen on the 27-year-old and have reached out to Leeds regarding a potential move - though it must be mentioned that the Whites are yet to reply to their new Championship rival's enquiry.
But based on some of the fan responses to the reports, it would appear to be a very smart move for Andrea Radrizzani to reject all approaches for Jansson from the Baggies.
It has already become a frustrating summer for Leeds with just one signing through the door, and it appears that the fans' frustration is likely to boil over if the next deal the club are involved in sees Jansson head to The Hawthorns - especially as a move to West Brom could see him reunited with former Leeds loanee Kyle Bartley who, according to BBC Sport, is in talks with the club over a move already.
Here is what some of the Leeds supporters make of the Jansson rumours...
If this happens I’ll be litterally chasing Radrizzani out of the club Cellino taxi style.— Jordan Brown (@jordancbrown) July 11, 2018
Knowing us we will sell— Ron (@ronaallleeds) July 11, 2018
I don't think my fragile heart could take that...— Jay Carter (@JayCartay) July 11, 2018
That’s meant to be our centre-back pairing!— James Pearson (@JamesPearson25) July 11, 2018
Got a funny feeling we will sell a big hitter in the squad like they did with wood just before the TF window shut. I personally wouldn't be suprised.— Pete's Leeds (@BadgeSmiley) July 11, 2018
Not as though mr radrizzani has shown the ambition Pontus asked for it is...wouldn’t blame for guy for leaving if it happens. More money and a better shot at PL football— carl smith (@carlsmith_88) July 11, 2018
I’d say bielsa would take the money and look to buy the player(s) that suit his system better. We will soon find out!— Barry Mc Guigan (@barrymcguigan1) July 11, 2018
Can't see pontus leaving for anything other than prem or top division in Europe. Sideways step if he does— Cookie (@t2yac) July 11, 2018
So wba want jansson for £10m ...what a joke ...more like £20m+...he has 4 years left on his contract and also a international defender ...if wba want to pay peanuts they better look in league two— mark ant jepson (@mrleedsunited) July 11, 2018
West Brom get Jansson I stop supporting Leeds until Radz is gone, it’s that simple— Nath Baxter (@nathbaxt) July 11, 2018
