Leeds United have added yet another player to their squad.

Leeds United’s new signing Pablo Hernandez has been photographed in training for the first time, with the image posted on the club’s official Twitter account.

The 31-year-old arrived at Elland Road from Qatari club Al-Arabi on an initial six-month loan deal with a permanent move expected to be finalised in January.

Leeds manager Garry Monk knows the Spaniard well from their time together at Swansea City and it will be interesting to see what the player brings to an ever-improving Whites squad when the new Championship campaign kicks off later this month.

Hernandez becomes Leeds’ seventh signing of the summer, joining Kemar Roofe, Marcus Antonsson, Matt Grimes, Rob Green, Kyle Bartley and Hadi Sacko at the club.

Despite being able to operate on either wing, Hernandez is expected to feature as a number 10 for Leeds and if he plays to his full potential he could quickly become a fan favourite.

That still may not be the end of Leeds’ summer business though, with an experienced central midfielder sorely needed and Liam Bridcutt the perfect candidate.
