Leeds United hero Pablo Hernandez has revealed discussions have been held about holding a friendly against his former club next summer.

Hernandez left Elland Road on a free transfer in the summer after five glorious years with the club, following a loan move from El Arabi in 2016.

He made 175 appearances for Leeds in that time, racking up 41 assists and 36 goals and solidifying himself as a firm fan favourite for all time.

Indeed, the love from Leeds fans has not ended now he has departed, with many still following him at new club CD Castellon and even travelling to watch their games when they can.

That’s something Castellon Plaza cover today, stating that Leeds fans have already attended ‘several trips’ to La Línea de la Concepción and Murcia while a ‘good representation’ visited Castalia for the match against Barça B as well.

Hernandez is ‘very much loved’ by the Leeds faithful, who do not hesitate to let him know that whenever they can.

The midfielder recently took part in a programme on Radio Voramar in which Leeds fans also tuned in to show their love, and the player revealed that talks about a friendly next summer to celebrate CD Castellón’s 100th birthday had already taken place.

“It would be incredible to be able to experience that, but I think that if the circumstances are right, I’m sure it can be done,” he said.

“When I spoke to Leeds about saying goodbye and specifically about my departure, the subject came up, and the idea is to be able to do it.

“Hopefully it will be for the centenary, next summer; it would be something amazing to be able to experience it, incredible for me. I hope it happens!”
