Promotion-winning Whites hero Hernandez ended a superb five years at Leeds when returning to boyhood club CD Castellon this summer.

The Spanish playmaker began his career at the club and then became a shareholder of CD Castellon after helping the Spaniards stave off insolvency in 2017.

Despite reports of other more lucrative offers elsewhere, Hernandez then signed for Castellon as a player this week, penning terms on a three-year deal following his departure from the Whites.
