Jansson suggested on Brentford’s official website that as soon as he heard Leeds were open to selling him, he asked his agent to try and organise a move to Bees.
"I said directly to [my agent] to check with Brentford because Brentford, for me, is one of the best teams"@PJansson5 talks through his move to West London— Brentford FC (@BrentfordFC) July 10, 2019
The comments have led to many supporters from Leeds and neutral sides suggesting that Jansson was not telling the truth.
But Forest winger Lolley insists that any Championship footballer knows just how good a team Brentford are now.
To be fair, anyone who’s played against Brentford in the last few years knows what a very good footballing team they are and how hard it is to play against them.— Joe Lolley (@JLolley23) July 11, 2019
Jansson’s move away from Leeds to Brentford has come as a shock, but it shows the ambition of the London side.
Lolley has also been linked with a move away this summer, but Forest have held on to him so far.
