Leeds fans react on Twitter to Hernandez display v Rotherham
By Harvey Byrne
Attacking midfielder Pablo Hernandez returned to Leeds line-up against Rotherham on Monday – and Whites fans on Twitter are keen to see him signed permanently.
The 31-year-old returned to the club’s starting eleven for the first time since November 5 after suffering a hamstring strain.
He made substitute appearances in his side’s last two league fixtures against Aston Villa and Preston, but Monk decided to start him against the bottom placed Millers.
The experienced Spaniard struggled in the first half, but his display in the second half will have caught the attention of many, supplying the first goal in the 3-0 win at Elland Road.
The former Swansea attacker set-up Kyle Bartley at a corner for the first goal, while a Chris Wood double secured all three points for the home side.

Hernandez joined Leeds in the summer from Qatari outfit Al-Arabi SC on a six-month loan deal.
He has returned with three assists and and three goals in 18 appearances so far this campaign.
However, if the club don’t tie him up to a longer deal they could lose one of their key players this month.
