Leeds United fans have been left perplexed by the difference between their sale price for Pontus Jansson and what Bournemouth have managed for Tyrone Mings.
Leeds United are close to selling star defender Pontus Jansson to Brentford.
West London Sport report Brentford are set to pay around just £5 million for the centre-back.
Meanwhile Bournemouth are on the verge of selling Tyrone Mings to Aston Villa for £26.5 million, report The Guardian.
Leeds fans were already infuriated by the reportedly low fee for Jansson before.
Now after seeing another player who competed in the Championship last season go for around £20 million more, the difference seems excessive.
Mings’ value can be debated, and Villa are breaking the fee down with £20 million and the rest in add-ons.
But it is credit to Bournemouth for negotiating a high price for the defender.
Leeds on the other hand are selling low, for a Sweden international who is well established as one of the Championship’s best defenders.
Mings is not proven in the Premier League, yet Bournemouth have been able to maximise his value.
Leeds rejected an offer of £10 million for Jansson from Russian side Krasnodar last summer, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported.
Whites fans are unhappy at the disparity between the valuations of Mings and Jansson and believe their club are making a financial error as well as a sporting one, which has been exposed by Bournemouth’s own impressive negotiating…
Mings £25m. Jansson £5.5m. FML #lufc— Hoofball Out (@HOlufc) July 7, 2019
Mings going for £26.5m and we’re letting Pontus go to a rival for £5.5 #LUFC— Austin (@AustinLDN86) July 7, 2019
So Mings is £20 mill and Jansson is £5 million? I don’t think it’s biased of me to say that there is no way Mings is 4x the player Jansson is #lufc it’s an absolutely absurd price to be selling at.— Libano (@naitchbey) July 7, 2019
Mings gone for £20.5million more than Jansson. Attitude problem or not, that difference is staggering. #lufc— Lee Charleton (@LeeCharleton) July 7, 2019
£20m for Mings… but Jansson only worth £5.5m??? Madness— Liam Cowan (@Liam_CowanDJ) July 7, 2019
I’m annoyed at the absolute state of what @LUFC and @andrearadri are apparently doing regards Pontus sale. We’re going to accept a paltry 5.5m for Jansson whereas at Villa we see Mings, who isn’t quite on Jansson’s level, joining them for nearly 30m. Disgrace.— Patrick Baker (@bakerthepatrick) July 7, 2019
