Swedish international defender Pontus Jansson arrived on a season-long loan from Torino to become Garry Monk's 10th signing of summer 2016.

The 25-year-old, a six-foot-five centre-back, has previously worked under United assistant boss Pep Clotet during his time with homeland outfit Malmo FF, where he began his professional career.

Jansson, who has eight senior Sweden caps to his name and was named in their Euro 2016 squad this summer, spent five years with the Malmo first-team before making the switch to Italy in summer 2014.

The defender featured 15 times in Serie A prior to linking up with the United squad, where he has taken shirt number 18.
