Leeds receive transfer boost as interest cools in Pontus Jansson

Leeds receive transfer boost as interest cools in Pontus Jansson

Leeds United have endured a tough transfer window this summer with the number of deals that have not gone their way, however, they may just be in for a little bit of positive news.

Marcelo Bielsa has been looking to strengthen his side since he arrived at Elland Road and has seen a number of planned moves for his main targets fall through for one reason or another.

The Argentine, who is keen to let some of his players depart as well, will be determined to keep hold of his stars and could be in for a boost of some sorts, with the news that one club is not interested in one of his defenders.

According to a report in the Express and Star, West Bromwich Albion are not considering a move for Pontus Jansson despite earlier claims that the Sweden international was on their radar.

The expected arrival of Kyle Bartley from Swansea City, a player that Leeds have missed out on this summer, seems to have cooled the Baggies interest in the World Cup defender and will leave Leeds feeling that they can breathe a little easier.

The Verdict:

Leeds will be pleased that the interest in Jansson has cooled as they know he has been one of their best players since arriving at Elland Road.

Things will now be looking a little better than they previously have been for the Whites as if they did lose the Swede, things surely would have been disastrous for Leeds this summer.
