Pontus Jansson made nine appearances in all competitions for Torino last season

Championship side Leeds have signed Sweden centre-back Pontus Jansson on a season-long loan deal from Torino, with an option for a permanent move.

Jansson joined Torino from Malmo in 2014, but has since made only 16 appearances in Serie A.

The 25-year-old has won eight caps for Sweden and was an unused member of their Euro 2016 squad.

“I need to play football regularly and I know that Leeds are a big club with big ambitions,” he said.

“I want to help take Leeds back to the Premier League as soon as possible. I’m an aggressive defender and I always give more than 100% for the team that I play for.”
