Pontus Jansson

The giant Swedish defender has become something of a cult hero at Elland Road since signing for the Whites at the start of the 2016 season. Initially a loan deal, this was made permanent in February 2017 with the former Malmo and Torino player signing a three-year deal. After Leeds narrowly missed out on a play-off place, Jansson was named in both the SkyBet Championship Team of the Season and the EFL Team Of The Season, cementing his status as a fans’ favourite. And it seems the feeling’s mutual. When Jansson got married in the summer of 2017 the band serenaded the happy couple with a special Swedish version of Pontus Jansson’s Magic, He Wears a Magic Hat – the song that Leeds fans created especially for him. Jansson also recently qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Sweden.
