Our Southampton and Leeds fans here in the Transfer Tavern haven’t really had much to say to each other in recent times but ClubCall’s Pontus Jansson story is certainly changing that.
The Saints and the Whites aren’t particular rivals at the moment – though Leeds are aiming to join them in the Premier League next season – but things could change should Jansson make the switch.
The defender has proven to be a real fan favourite at Elland Road this season with some strong and no-nonsense displays at the back – something the Saints could do with extra of.
With Jose Fonte going to West Ham the men from the south coast have been left short at the back and it does seem that they are keen on Jansson with them reportedly scouting him in the game against Sheffield Wednesday.
He impressed in that game, too, and the Whites kept a clean-sheet on their way to another win in their play-off surge and whilst they’ll be hoping for more of that, they’ll also be keen to see the Saints cast their eyes elsewhere.
Thoughts, Southampton and Leeds fans? Let us know below!
