Pablo Hernandez has signed a new contract with Leeds United, the club announced on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year extension that will see him stay at the club until 2022.
The playmaker quickly became a fan favourite when he signed for the club ahead of the 2016/17 season initially on loan from Qatar side Al-Arabi.
The Whites snapped him up on a permanent deal in January 2017 and he ended his first full season with six goals in 38 appearances.
Hernandez was then named Leeds’ player of the year after the 2017/18 season where he netted nine times in 43 games.
He won that prize for the second consecutive season in 2018/19 where he scored 12 and added 12 assists as Marcelo Bielsa’s side were beaten in the Championship play-offs.
