Joe Urquhart on Twitter has updated Leeds United fans on Adam Forshaw’s current injury status.
According to Joe Urquhart on Twitter, Adam Forshaw is still battling with a hip injury and is seemingly no closer to returning to Elland Road, with the journalist simply saying ‘nothing new.’
Nothing new. Still battling with his hip.

Despite playing only seven Championship matches so far this season, Forshaw still has a Transfermarkt value of £4.50m which seems a lot for a player struggling to get game time in the second division of England.
Does Adam Forshaw exist?
We can confirm that Forshaw does actually exist and is definitely still alive, which some fans have been speculating.
When Phil Hay did a post-Millwall Q&A for The Athletic, he stated that the 28-year-old is just trying to get over the final hurdles in his injury recovery, but went on to say that the Peacocks are anxious to avoid an operation and to prevent him from being seen for the rest of the current season (The Athletic).
Forshaw was last seen against Charlton on 28th September 2019, a match Leeds lost 1-0 with the 28-year-old only managing to play 45 minutes of football (WhoScored).
With the tiny amount of game time Forshaw has had this season, even if the 28-year-old returned tomorrow it’s going to take him so much time to get up to Marcelo Bielsa’s minimum level of fitness, due to playing just seven league matches all season.
We feel it’s unlikely you’ll see the midfielder again this season, with the recovery time needed should he have an operation and the work he’ll have to do on the training ground to catch up, it would have to be somewhat of a miracle to see Forshaw play again this campaign.
