Leeds United have been handed a huge injury boost with Pablo Hernandez returning to training after a recent spell on the sidelines with a groin injury.

LUTV released footage of first-team training at Thorp Arch with several players out on international duty.

The video clip, as shown on YouTube, mainly centred on new £17million signing Raphinha but it also showed Hernandez, 35, going through his paces on the grass.

According to LeedsLive, Marcelo Bielsa said that Hernandez would be out for two weeks after suffering his groin injury in the warm-up ahead of the clash against Fulham on September 19.

It’s now been over two weeks and Hernandez has missed three Premier League matches but it does look as though the Spaniard is back to fitness and could play once the international break is over and the Whites welcome Wolves to Elland Road.

It will be a battle between the last two teams to win the Championship title.

Both have spent a lot of money since winning promotion to the Premier League and both have very ambitious owners, managers and players.

Having Hernandez back will be a massive boost for Leeds.

Although the Whites have not lost in the three matches he’s missed, the Spaniard has been one of the best – if not the best – players for Leeds since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2004.

His experience and ability to create chances will be a major advantage when playing against Wolves if he can feature in that match.

In other Leeds United news, Kalvin Phillips has told this former Leeds player that he misses him.
