Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! Hopefully this tells other clubs we mean business.

Feels like less of our typical signing but fair play, he’s got proven ability at this level. Sounds like we are going for it

Unreal signing.

Is this rumour of a £10m release clause true though?

Possibly our most "glamorous" signing ever.

Not the best player from the league below, not a highly promising youngster, not a person who looks great on You Tube, but an experienced tough player with huge pedigree who was widely considered as the best central defender in the Championship last season, and one who would improve EVERY team in the division.

He's ours. He's a Bee.

Oh my. I really thought it was a mighty bluff. Gobsmacked. Welcome Pontus. Loved watching you play with baby on your tweet.

He’s an absolute arse, but he’s now our absolute arse. Welcome Pontus. I’m definitely going to Leeds this season. lol

Well, he’s our arsewipe now. The biggest transfer shock we’ve made since signing Tommy Lawton in 1952.

This is the day that changed everything.

Teethin’ Tremendous. Nice that it is a twofer which weakens one of our promotion rivals!

He left cos your sh*t, Leeds, Leeds, you're falling apart, again.

A cheeky bid for Roofe now would send them apoplectic ��

Actually, even if we have no intention on Roofe we should ramp up the rumours, I've, that pen was placed strategically on the rooftop as a clue.

He doesn't look entirely comfortable in the signing picture. Doesn't look quite right in a Bees shirt. He does realise that he hasn't signed for the one time Champions of Europe, right? I hope he's not just signing for the money.

Well that’s taken the Bees up a step or two. Incredible. Always nice to have a real “sh*t” in your XI. Let’s hope these signings -more to come I’m sure - change the minds of those looking to move on.... what a season we could have in store.... :)

Could we have not got a better picture of him signing the contract !?

Only have to look at twitter for reactions from non Leeds/Bees fans to see what a statement signing this is for us

Imagine going back in time literally just 3 or 4 days and showing someone that picture, the sheer confusion and bewilderment that would ensue

Interesting in the statement that it is described as an opportunistic signing and that he hadn’t been tracked for any significant period.

Nothing should surprise us any more but demonstrates agility / flexibility in the transfer dealings as well as uncovering little known talent.

Looking forward to him achieving cult (and an “n” for the “l” when it comes to opposition fans) status with us.

Not meaning to piss on the general fire or anything, but this is a departure from our normal MO. Big money, presumably big wages, and little due diligence. Hopefully, that's because signing him is a no brainer.

A signing that tells the rest of the Championship that we mean business.

Well well well, Happy to say that this is a statement signing. Couldnt stand the bloke at Leeds and havent rated him when ever ive seen him play. but fair play to MB and the DOF.

If he is what takes us to the next level then im all in.
