Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa does not want to lose Pablo Hernandez or Kiko Casilla in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror. It has been reported that attacking midfielder Hernandez remains part of his plan, and that although Casilla is now the back-up goalkeeper to Illan Meslier, the Argentine does not want the Spaniard to leave.
Hernandez joined Leeds on loan from Al-Arabi in 2016 and made the deal permanent in 2017. The 36-year-old, who can also operate as a winger, has been superb for the Whites over the years and helped them win automatic promotion from the Championship at end of last season. However, according to WhoScored, the former Valencia and Swansea City star has made two starts and 13 substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Whites so far this season.
Casilla lost his place in the Leeds starting lineup last season. The 34-year-old former Real Madrid goalkeeper has played once in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup this season, according to WhoScored.
