Pablo Hernández has insisted he wants an ‘ambitious’ move this summer after leaving Leeds United.
The midfielder’s Leeds contract expires at the end of the month but, despite being 36, he has no plans to retire yet.
His move away from Elland Road will bring about an end to a four-year spell with Leeds that has proven to be very fruitful for both parties.
Hernández was often the star of the show during his time with the club, racking up 36 goals and 41 assists in 175 games for the club.
Finding another Premier League team, or even a Championship side, is likely to be difficult for him given his age and where he is in his career.
There had been a plan for him to join Castellón, but that has now become more difficult after their relegation from the second division in Spain.
That’s left Hernández assessing his options, with him determined to be ambitious after his time with Leeds.
“I have shown it at Leeds, and I want to go to an ambitious project and to a place that aspires to beautiful things, to upgrade,” he told El Mundo.
“Or if it is in First, to a team with which I feel identified with. In this category [First RFEF], the only team that can give me this is Castellón,
“The day I decide to sign for Castellón will not be due to the economic issue. I know the limitations of this category and the club.
“I have always said that I would like to play for Castellón and the financial issue will not be a priority when I do so.”
