Leeds United have so far fallen short of bringing in top transfer targets Abel Hernandez and Matej Vydra.

The only good news is that no other club has snapped them up either, giving fans a slither of hope that their hopes may yet be fulfilled.

Hernandez is currently a free agent, yet to agree a deal with any club, 12 days after his contract with Hull City expired.

It is a surprising situation for a player who scored eight goals in 10 games at the end of last season.
