Both players are extremely popular among the fans, and they have been model professionals.

Hernandez was outstanding in the Championship for Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa. However, he has struggled for game time this season.

El Mago, as he is popularly known, produced his best moment in a Leeds shirt when he netted the winner against former club Swansea City as the Whites took a gigantic step in achieving promotion.

Berardi joined the club in 2014 and quickly established himself as a key player.

Under Bielsa, he was switched from his usual full-back position to centre-back, and he did exceptionally well, despite missing a chunk of the season through injury.

The Swiss played a key part in helping Leeds win promotion to the Premier League, making 24 more appearances in all competitions.

He has struggled with a knee injury which has limited him to just one Premier League appearance this season.
