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.

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.
