Leeds United have confirmed that Pontus Jansson has signed a new long-term deal with the club that will see him remain at Elland Road until 2022.


The Peacocks confirmed on their website that the 26-year-old Swedish international has joined a long list of players to agree new deals with the club, the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Ronaldo Vieira and Stuart Dallas all committing their future to ​Leeds over the summer.

The Swedish defender first joined Leeds at the start of the 2016/17 season on a season-long loan from ​Serie A side Torino.


His incredible maiden season was to convince United's hierarchy of making the deal permanent over the summer and Jansson left Turin in a deal worth £3.6m.

Having gone on to feature in 47 games for Leeds during his short spell in Yorkshire, Jansson has become a real fan favourite and his performances could help guide Leeds to a spot in the ​Championship play-off places this season, United currently sat in fourth place in the table.


Should Jansson continue to perform at the level he has shown with Leeds, it seems only a matter of time before he make a move into the ​Premier League
