Attacking midfielder Pablo Hernandez is a doubt for Leeds’ next Championship clash against Rotherham, according to a reliable journalist.
The 31-year-old was left out of Garry Monk’s side which suffered a 2-0 loss against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon and could now be set for another match on the sidelines.
The experienced attacking midfielder suffered the injury in the clash against Norwich before the international break which saw him brought off of the pitch in the 89th minute with a hamstring problem.
Now BBC Sport journalist Adam Pope has reported on his personal Twitter account that Leeds could be without the Spain international as they prepare for an all Yorkshire clash.

Youth graduate Kalvin Phillips stepped in for Hernandez against Newcastle, but the Yorkshire giants were lacking the creative genius in the final third of the pitch which the on loan man brings to the team.
The former Valencia attacker has wowed fans with his ability on the ball during his first 15 appearances for the club and has produced two assists and two goals.
Now Leeds will be gearing up for a match against the Championship’s worst side in the division in Rotherham as they battle for a play-off spot in seventh, while the Millers prop up the league with seven points from 17 matches.
In other Leeds team news, this star-man will be missing from Monk’s side for the Rotherham clash.
