Leeds United and Derby County are in the running to sign Hull City and Uruguay striker Abel Hernandez, according to bookmakers Bet Victor.

The striker has almost been forgotten about at the Tigers, playing just 10 times in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

He did his best to cement a place in the first team, scoring eight times in those 10 games, but it seems that his future lies away from Hull City.

His contract expires at the end of June, and a whole host of clubs are lining up to sign the Uruguay international striker, including Leeds United, who have been given odds of 10/1 to land the front man.

Derby County are currently 4/1 to take him to the iPro Stadium.

It may seem unlikely, but Hernandez is going to be desperate for game time, whether it be in the Premier League or the Sky Bet Championship.

Of course, the top flight is always a players’ first choice destination, but Hernandez has sat around on the bench for too long, and at the age of 27, he will be wanting to get some minutes under his belt.

Abel Hernandez joined Hull City when they were a Premier League team, for a fee believed to be in the region of £10 million.

He moved from Italian side Palermo, where he spent five years of his career. He impressed with the former Serie A club, scoring 36 goals in all competitions and earning his move to the top flight of English football.

Hernandez has made it clear that he is more than capable of performing in the Sky Bet Championship, having scored 20 goals in Hull City’s first year back in the league following relegation from the Premier League.
