With the largely unexpected news of Pontus Jansson’s quick £5.5million switch out to Brentford earlier this week amidst plenty of fall out claims with manager Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United, there is one part of the story that doesn’t appear to ring true.

Bielsa had already had plenty of praise of Pontus and his efforts last season and on his departure Pontus also had plenty of praise for the gaffer, albeit with a comment about the distance our Argentine likes from players and language issues that didn’t leave things ‘easy’.

However, when coming up for an explanation of the quick transfer out, Jansson told reports that it was down to Financial Fair Play concerns as he was a saleable asset – but if that was the case why was the fee so low?

Whatever your thoughts on the modern day legend, that just sadly doesn’t tally and plenty picked up on it and plenty more were confused, even if some of the reactions in all directions were childish.

Jack Clarke was all profit for FFP, even allowing for the arrival of Kiko Casilla, I struggle to see this would even be a cash flow or wage related sale but that fee stands out. Yes, there’ll be profit for FFP on Jansson, but if this was truly FFP related, it would be another youngster out the door like Kalvin Phillips.
