Garry Monk confident of securing a deal for Leeds loanee Pontus Jansson
Jansson arrived at Elland Road on a season-long loan deal in the summer from Torino and has been a rock at the back for Leeds this term.
He's picked up his fair share of yellow cards, with 10 to his name already, but has helped Leeds keep nine clean sheets in his 20 Championship appearances.
Leeds' option to buy the Sweden international kicked in last night when he started against Nottingham Forest.

Jansson's agent Martin Dahlin revealed earlier this month that there's a clause in the loan deal that allows Leeds to sign him for £3.5million after he plays 22 games in all competitions.
The Yorkshire Evening Post claim Leeds have already agreed personal terms with the 25-year-old defender, and manager Monk suggests a deal is edging closer.
When asked for an update on Jansson's future, Monk said: "Yeah, I'm sure the club will take care of that in due course and when the time is ready.
"But you can see all the players we have are committed and very focused on what we're doing and all the other stuff is for the club to take care of."

Jansson was clearly proud to guide Leeds to a sixth win and sixth clean sheet at Elland Road when they beat Forest 2-0 last night.
The experienced Swede posted on his Twitter account: "Win, clean sheet and another three points home at Elland Road."
Jansson has earned 10 caps for Sweden, but failed to get off the bench at Euro 2016 last summer.
