The national newspaper in his homeland revealed that Jansson was thriving with the Whites in the Championship, but the defender wanted to see what is planned for next season after a disappointing campaign.

"We'll see what's happening, I want to hear from the club how to look next year and so on,” he reportedly said.

Jansson put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Elland Road last October and is currently away on international duty with Sweden as they make their final preparations for this summer's World Cup in Russia.
