Leeds United have had another disappointing Championship campaign once again, despite this season providing them with promotion aspirations during the early course of the year, and the locals in the Transfer Tavern are finally due some good news.
The Elland Road outfit started the football calendar in fine form – however, their first defeat saw them go onto a continuous spiral of defeats, leading to Thomas Christiansen losing his job and being replaced by Paul Heckingbottom.
The former Barnsley manager has not been able to turn the ship around and the Whites appear to be heading for a mid-table finish. A number of the locals in the bar have been critical of his management on social media, as well as the performance of some of their stars.
However, Pablo Hernandez has been on the other end of the spectrum with the Elland Road faithful, and punters will thus be delighted to hear that the Spaniard has committed his future to the club, as per the club’s official website.
The 33-year-old had taken to Twitter to reveal he has signed a two-year deal to remain at the club until 2020, and will do all he can to try and take Leeds to the Premier League.

And this agreement is sure to come as good news for our resident Leeds fans, with many getting increasingly concerned that Hernandez wouldn’t sign a new deal as time ticked towards the summer transfer window.
Landlord’s Verdict: The locals in the Tavern will be delighted that their key man has finally been able to sign a new deal, and will feel their chances of competing for a Premier League spot next season will be that much better with him remaining at Elland Road.
Leeds fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
