Done Deal: Leeds United complete first January signing

Leeds vs Port Vale

Leeds Utd have confirmed the capture of winger Pablo Hernandez on a permanent deal. The 31-year-old initially joined the Whites in a six-month loan move from Qatari side Al-Arabi Sports Club in August.

He enjoyed quite a productive first half of season under his former Swansea manager Gary Monk at Elland Road and managed to score three goals in 15 league appearances.

His performances in the first half of the season compelled the Whites to sign him on a permanent deal until the end of the season. The Whites also have the option to extend the player’s contract by an additional 12 months at the end of the current deal.

The Spaniard has represented the likes of Valencia, Getafe and Swansea in his illustrious career.

He has also represented the Spain national team on four occasions and was part of the squad that claimed the third-place finish in 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.
