Leeds supporters have expressed their delight on Twitter over the signing of Pablo Hernandez.

The Yorkshire giants revealed on their official website that the 31-year-old will join on an initial six-month loan from Qatari side Al-Arabi with a view to a permanent transfer in January.

The former Swansea player will return to English football and aim to help secure Leeds promotion back to the top-flight under Garry Monk.

Leeds fans seem delighted with the signing and took to Twitter to explain what the winger could bring them.

Here are a selection of their messages:

Hernandez is the seventh summer signing of manager Garry Monk, who has also added Rob Green, Hadi Sacko, Marcus Antonsson, Kyle Bartley, Kemar Roofe and Matt Grimes.

Al-Arabi signed Hernandez from Swansea – a club where he played alongside Monk from 2012 to 2014 – but he spent most of last season in La Liga on loan at Rayo Vallecano.

Hernandez has spent most of his career playing as a winger but Monk views him as a natural No10 and he will be handed the playmaker role at Elland Road.


In other Leeds transfer news, they are targeting another former Swansea player and will need to offer £2million.
