Supporters of Leeds United have recently flocked to a claim regarding the future of Spanish attacker Pablo Hernandez.
Speaking on the 35-year-old attacker, the pundit said: “There were times when he was out injured for periods and when he came back in, it was off the bench.
“It happens to us all, unfortunately. As you enter the twilight of his career, injuries get harder to get over.”
After these quotes were picked up by TEAMtalk, their report also touted three clubs which could benefit from his services, in Huddersfield Town, Swansea City and Brentford – which had been claimed by The72.
So, what did these Leeds fans make of the claim on Pablo Hernandez?
Some speculation doing the rounds over Pablo Hernandez's future.
That's inevitable given his situation at Leeds right now.
I still believe there's a role for our Spanish magician to play and I truly hope he still plays his part this season. https://t.co/X5KW93F4Yw

Mills is our version of Agbonlahor, Bent etc, minus the obvious spite. My favourite is when he said full backs don’t do as much in the modern game. Yeah, nice one Danny.

Plus it’s Danny Mills. Let’s wait for a credible source first before packing Pablo’s bags…

The 35-year-old attacker currently has until the summer of 2022 left on his contract with the Whites and a market value of £1.08m according to Transfermarkt.
Would you mind if Pablo Hernandez left in January?
No, he can go for me
Yes, he needs to stay
I’d be surprised if he left before the end of the season, I’d love to see him join as a coach also

So far this season, Hernandez has made four appearances in the top flight for Leeds, in which he has neither scored nor assisted a goal (per WhoScored).
His performances in the four outings have earned the player a weak 6.11/10 average rating, making him the joint-second-worst player in the league for the Whites this term.

It’s Danny Mills. That’s all you need to know.

As can be seen in these responses from Leeds fans, many of them were sceptical of the transfer talk, although some were slightly concerned.
