Leeds United have turned down offers for Pablo Hernandez this summer, according to a report published by The Athletic.
Despite being 34-years-old, Hernandez remains an important player within Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites side.
Leeds parted ways with a number of first-team regulars from last season this summer, which makes the importance of Hernandez to the team this season even more vital.
Some of the departures which they saw this summer included Kemar Roofe, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Pontus Jansson and Jack Clarke.
The report added that the offers which Leeds received for Hernandez came from Spain and that they could be tested again before the Spanish transfer window slams shut on September 2.
Hernandez has been in good form so far in the Championship this season and scored two goals from two games.
Leeds have had a decent start to the season, drawing one game and winning one. They will be aiming for nothing less than automatic promotion this season after having lost out during the promotion playoff semi-finals last season.
Bielsa faces a strong test this season and it will be very difficult to see him remaining at Elland Road beyond this season should the club once again fail to win top-flight status.
It is vital that Leeds continue to turn down all offers they receive for Hernandez.
He not only has an important role to play on the pitch but off it as well. As an experienced player for the team, it is up to him to help guide youngsters from within the dressing room.
