Leeds fans are absolutely delighted with the news that Pablo Hernandez has started discussions about extending his time at Elland Road.
It’s been a while since we’ve had some good news to share with Leeds fans, but the fact that fan favourite Pablo Hernandez has entered contract negotiations will be music to fans ears.
According to Sportsmail, the winger has started discussions and the club are hopeful he will agree to stay beyond the summer. Manager Paul Heckingbottom is a big fan of Hernandez.
The Spaniard will be 33 by this summer, but is nonetheless one of Leeds’ best players and certainly their most creative outlet.
In a season that has gone from decent to terrible in dramatic fashion, Hernandez has still managed four goals and seven assists despite missing some time through injury.
There hasn’t been much to cheer about at Elland Road since Boxing Day, but tying up Hernandez to an extended deal would be the first step in preparing to right the wrongs next season.
