Jansson having medical ahead of Brentford move

Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson is having a medical ahead of a move to Brentford. 

Jansson, 28, is set to sign for the Bees, who have had an offer for the Swedish centre-back accepted.

He is a popular figure at Leeds, who signed him from Torino in 2017 after he spent a season on loan at Elland Road from the Italian club.

He has three years remaining on his contract at Leeds and played a key role in helping them reach the Championship play-off final last season.

His signing would therefore be a coup for Brentford, who have rejected an offer from Celtic for Romaine Sawyers and as of Monday morning had still not received an approach for Neal Maupay, who has been linked with Sheffield United.
