After another week of bad press we have some good news, some very good news actually. Pablo Hernandez has penned a new two-year-deal with the club, taking him through until the summer of 2020.

Hernandez has signed the new deal after weeks of speculation that has linked him with moves all over, including Spain and Birmingham where he was heavily touted for a reunion with Garry Monk. Money was certainly on offer elsewhere compared to Leeds but Paul Heckingbottom and the club have convinced him that Leeds is the place for him to potentially end his career. Hernandez will be 35 by the time his new deal ends and it’s fair to say he’s been getting better with age recently.

Hernandez has really stepped up where others have hidden this season and the overwhelming majority of Leeds fans are delighted with the news today. The fact that he has stayed when it looked like he would probably go is great and it gives us optimism for the summer as the club clearly convinced Hernandez that they are going in the right direction. Hernandez has said that in his new contract he aims to leave Leeds United as a Premier League club.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
