Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that Pablo Hernandez is available for their upcoming Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers (via @Phil_Hay).
Should Leeds sign Helder Costa permanently?
Hernandez has been a key player for Leeds during his time at Elland Road, particularly last season when he contributed 12 goals and 12 assists in just 39 Championship appearances (via @Transfermarkt).
It would be fair to say that they have missed the former Swansea City man in his absence. Indeed, they have managed to score just four goals in the six games in which he has been out (Transfermarkt).
It is unknown whether Bielsa will throw him straight into the starting 11 or utilise him from the bench, but having him back in the squad should be a major boost for them.
Naturally, plenty of Leeds fans are delighted to see the 34-year-old back in the fold, with many of them admitting that he has been a huge loss whilst out injured. Here is how some of them have reacted to the news on Twitter…
King Pablo is back! 👍🏼

He’s the main player we have with guile and creativity. Been the same since he joined, we struggle when he’s absent. Only Saiz came close.

That is a major understatement. When Pablo is out or off form we’re a shadow of the team we can be.
