Leeds fans are still praying they’ll see Abel Hernandez at Elland Road next season

Leeds United’s interest in Abel Hernandez is over after the striker wouldn’t budge on his £100,000 per week wage demands, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

The former Hull City striker is out of contract and available on a free this summer and rumours linking him with a move to Elland Road have persisted for most of the transfer window.

The Uruguay international joined Hull in 2014 from Palermo and went on to score 37 goals for the Tigers, including a very impressive season in the Championship where he netted 21 times.

Leeds have had a very quiet transfer window with Chelsea loanees Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker the only arrivals at Elland Road so far this summer.

New boss Marcelo Bielsa is in desperate need of a new striker but Hernandez’s extortionate wage demands mean any chance of a deal is off the table.

Leeds fans have been reacting to the news on social media and some have even resorted to begging the player to reconsider.
