'Like Cavani' - Exclusive: Hutton shares how Hernandez key to potential Leeds signing

Alan Hutton claims that Pablo Hernandez could be the perfect role model for Todd Cantwell if he is to join Leeds United.

The former Aston Villa and Scotland star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, claims that the 22-year-old could learn plenty off the Spanish playmaker.

As revealed by Football Insider, Leeds made a late move for the Norwich winger before Monday’s transfer deadline after they had made a £15million bid earlier in the window.

Premier League sides are still able to do business with EFL clubs until the domestic transfer window closes on 16 October.

Hutton believes that Cantwell would be one for the future at Elland Road but that he would have the perfect player to learn off in Hernandez.

Hutton told Football Insider: “I can’t see Cantwell coming in and playing every single week. He’s maybe one that will learn off players like Hernandez.

“I mean, he’s probably a great guy to look at daily and see how he works to improve his game. It would be good for him.

“I always think it’s good for young players to see players like that and how they go about their business week in, week out and really learn. 

“Like Cavani, that situation, people say it’s not a great one but can you imagine the likes of Greenwood and guys like that coming through who can learn from the experiences of these guys?

“I think it’ll be one for the future but if he goes, he’ll definitely play his part under Bielsa.”
