Leeds United news round-up: Hernandez details, Kent linked and Jansson on Bielsa

The latest news and gossip from Championship club Leeds United.

Hernandez details

Leeds United are still locked in talks over the potential signature of Abel Hernandez. It was reported earlier this week that the Whites appeared to have sealed the deal for the free agent former Hull City player.

The Yorkshire Evening Post is now reporting that Leeds are still thrashing out the details of a move. It is believed they have figured out a way to finance his £40,000-a-week wage demands, which he was previously on at Hull when in the Premier League.

The report also claims Hernandez will have a release clause, which will give him the chance to move to the Premier League should Leeds fall short.

The talented striker, who scored eight goals in 10 games for Hull last season, is back in his native Uruguay at present but this deal can hopefully be tied up soon.

Kent targeted

Leeds remain interested in a loan move for Liverpool winger Ryan Kent. Goal report that both Leeds and Rangers are keen on signing the 21-year-old on loan for the 2018-19 campaign.

The wideman spent the first half of last season on loan at SC Freiburg before joining Bristol City in January.

He is set to be sent out by Liverpool again next season and Leeds appear to be in the hunt for his temporary residency.

Jansson likes Bielsa

Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson might be linked with a move away from the club this summer, but the Swede is very excited by the current management situation at Elland Road.

Leeds are currently in talks with legendary Argentine coach Marcelo Bielsa over taking up the challenge of turning Leeds into a winning side.

Speaking to FotbollSkanalen he said he ‘would learn a lot’ from the former Chile boss.

The ambitious move is certainly impressing the Leeds cult hero who must feel he the approach shows some of the verve he wants to see from the club in order for him to stick around this summer.
