Payment in question: Torino seek FIFA intervention into Jansson deal

New, comment

Torino wants money now but Leeds says ‘whoa, you can wait.

FIFA called to investigate Jansson fee from Leeds to Torino.

Torino FC is claiming they have yet to be paid by Leeds United for back Pontus Jansson’s services.

According to several media outlets, the Serie A side has appealed to FIFA to intervene.

At odds is a part of the loan agreement that states the Whites will have to pay Torino €4 million to sign him on a permanent basis if Jansson made more than 22 appearances for Leeds.

The problem: Torino officials said the Whites have yet to pay them while Leeds officials said they believe they have until June 30.

Jansson has become a fan favorite at Elland Road.

Torino are currently ninth in Serie A on 50 points — six points behind Inter and nine back of Fiorentina — after a 5-0 weekend thrashing at the hands of Napoli.

Just for memory’s sake, here’s a Jansson goal against Aston Villa earlier this season.

So, let’s recap the defensive news for Leeds of late:

Should be the start of a very interesting off-season for the Whites.
