Due to the unprecedented interest surrounding the future of midfielder, Carlos Hernandez, Melbourne Victory wishes to advise its members and fans that negotiations have begun, to retain the services of the midfielder beyond this season.

With the Costa Rican-s current contract expiring on April 30, the club can confirm it has opened dialogue with the 2010 Johnny Warren medallist and his management.

Having scored 35 goals in 120 Hyundai A-League appearances for the club, Hernandez is certainly in the club's future plans, with Managing Director, Richard Wilson, saying, “Now we-re at the end of our season, we-ve started negotiations with Carlos and his management over a new deal.”

“Players of Carlos' quality are difficult to find, so we'll be working hard to re-sign him,” Wilson added.
