Former Swansea player Hernandez has settled in well at Elland Road after taking a few weeks to acclimatise and build up his match fitness.
He has made 12 appearances for Garry Monk’s side in all competitions, including nine league starts, and has scored two goals and supplied one assist.
Hernandez was particularly influential during the team’s run of five wins from six matches, including four out of five league games, before the international break.
