Jansson is a regular in the Leeds XI
Leeds sit fifth in the Championship heading into tonight’s home clash against Nottingham Forest, having seen their seven game unbeaten streak ended with a 3-2 defeat at Barnsley last weekend.
A victory over Forest would send them back up to third – and eight points clear of seventh-place Derby.
Discussing Leeds’ promotion chances, Jansson added: “Leeds have been a sleeping giant that dreamed of success and is now waking up again.
“Many people laughed at me when I said I wanted to join Leeds and take them to the Premier League.”
