According to reports in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United attacking midfielder Pablo Hernandez is set to sign a new two-year deal with the club, and Whites fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
The 33-year-old’s contract at Elland Road is due to expire at the end of the season and there would have been concerns that he could go this summer, but the Yorkshire Evening Post now says he is set extend his stay with the Whites for a further two years.
The news will certainly be good for manager Paul Heckingbottom and the Elland Road faithful, who have seen the Spaniard score seven goals and provide a further nine assists in what has been another disappointing campaign, and one made worse by Andrea Radrizzani’s comments about the Myanmar pre-season trip in recent days.
Leeds supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the Hernandez story, and while one said “finally some good news”, another said they were “so glad he’s staying”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Fantastic news. He must have had some reassurances about next season. So glad he’s staying.
