The Swedish defender will not be returning to Turin at the end of the season.

Italian owned Leeds United will lock down Pontus Jansson after he reached the predetermined number of games played. The clause in the loan deal stated if he reached 22 appearances, Leeds would be forced to buy him out.

According to his agent Martin Dahlin, the clause has been indeed triggered and Torino will receive €4 million for the Sweden international.

The Yorkshire Evening Post labeled Jansson a ‘cult hero’ among the fans for his performances in England’s second division this season.

Leeds have yet to confirm the official buyout of the defender yet, but an announcement could be coming very soon.
