The brother of linked-away Leeds United star Pontus Jansson has sent quite a worrying tweet.

According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, the 28-year-old is set to leave Elland Road after an 'unnamed Championship club' tabled a £5.5 million offer.

The Leeds defender originally joined the Whites in 2016 under Garry Monk but it looks like he is on borrowed time in West Yorkshire.

Jansson is a massively popular figure among United fans, and one concerned supporter tweeted his brother, Peter, to ask if Pontus was going to be a Leeds player next season.


Although Peter responded, he sidestepped the original question.

If Jansson was staying at Elland Road, you'd imagine that his brother would be privy to such information, and yet the fact that he didn't confirm his stay might suggest that his bags are packed.

Jansson was a big player for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa last season and he will no doubt need to be replaced.
