Supporters of Leeds United have recently flocked to a claim regarding the future of Spanish attacker Pablo Hernandez.

In a recent interview with Football Insider, as cited by TEAMtalk, Danny Mills claimed that time has “caught up with him a little bit” in recent seasons.

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.

This was then relayed on Twitter and quote-tweeted by James Marshment, which had Leeds fans talking.

So, what did these Leeds fans make of the claim on Pablo Hernandez?

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.

No, he can go for me

Yes, he needs to stay

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.

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