Leeds United confirmed the signing of Spanish playmaker Pablo Hernandez on Monday evening, snapping up their seventh addition of the summer.

Having already signed Rob Green, Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes, Kemar Roofe, Hadi Sacko and Marcus Antonsson, manager Garry Monk has now swooped to add yet another new face - and it's one he knows very well.

Spaniard Pablo Hernandez has joined Leeds on a six-month loan deal from Qatari side Al-Arabi, reuniting with Monk in the process.

The former Valencia star played alongside Monk at Swansea City and was then managed by the Leeds boss at the Liberty Stadium - a factor which may have played into the player's decision to head back to English football after spells in the Middle East and back in Spain.

A winger or playmaker, Hernandez has Champions League and even international experience behind him, and represents one of the club's most exciting signings of the summer.

It may only be a loan deal right now, but the Yorkshire Evening Post claim that a permanent deal has already been agreed should Hernandez impress - and fans have been taking to Twitter to give their thoughts on the deal.

Fans are clearly excited by the deal, and believe that he could be the player Leeds have been lacking, with most supporters believing that Hernandez can provide an extra bit of quality in the final third.

Others went as far to say that he's the best signing the club have made since suffering relegation in 2004 - but also want to see another central defender and a midfielder, preferably Liam Bridcutt, arrive before the transfer deadline later this month...
