Former Valencia and Swansea City playmaker Hernandez joined Leeds from Al-Arabi in August 2016 and the Spaniard went on to make 175 appearances for the Whites, scoring 36 goals and providing 41 assists.

Hernandez ended half a decade at the club through his departure this summer and the former Spanish international is now 36 years old but Hernandez says his displays at Leeds showed what he still has to offer.

The former Whites star part owns hometown club Castellon but Castellon have just been relegated from Spanish football's second tier.

The modern day Leeds legend has been linked with a move to Segunda Division side FC Cartagena and Hernandez has outlined his desire to be part of a project with ambition in the twilight of his career.

“I have shown it at Leeds, and I want to go to an ambitious project and to a place that aspires to beautiful things, to upgrade,” Hernandez told El Mundo.

“Or to a team with which I feel identified with. In this category, the only team that can give me this is Castellón,

“The day I decide to sign for Castellón will not be due to the economic issue. I know the limitations of this category and the club."
