According to reports from Sweden, Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson wants to play his football in the Premier League next season, amid links with West Ham.
The powerful central defender is a key part of the Leeds team but it seems he has his eyes firmly set on a move to the English top flight, if reports from his homeland are to be believed.
It’s been reported recently by the Guardian’s Ed Aarons that Jansson is a target for West Ham in the summer, with David Moyes’ side lacking depth in central defence.

Jose Fonte’s departure in January has left a void to fill for the Hammers in the summer, with their defensive weaknesses having been well documented throughout the course of the campaign.
Jansson has often been linked with a move to the Premier League and with West Ham apparently keen, it seems his future at Elland Road is somewhat uncertain ahead of the summer.
