Spanish outlet Cadena Ser starts the week reporting CD Castellón’s wish to sign Pablo Hernandez from Leeds United.

It’s claimed that in recent days, the second division side negotiated the midfielder’s signing, but couldn’t get what they wanted.

Cadena Ser points out that Castellón had the green light from the player, who was willing to ‘go back home’ and try to help them avoid relegation.

Leeds United, however, ‘didn’t facilitate’ the transfer, and unless there’s a dramatic late change, Castellón won’t be getting the player.

CD Castellón are actually looking for signings in other positions, so Pablo Hernandez’s arrival was seen more like an opportunity than a priority.

The midfielder, who’s been playing for Leeds United since 2017, has only made ten appearances for the club this season, getting few minutes in each game he’s been on the pitch.

As Hernandez turns 36-years-of-age in April, it now becomes very likely that we’ll see him linked to other Spanish sides ahead of the summer. Especially to Castellón, who are his home town club.
