Leeds United: Fans issue verdict on Adam Forshaw’s future

Image for Leeds United: Fans issue verdict on Adam Forshaw’s future

Leeds United could be faced with a decision on Adam Forshaw’s future this month, with the midfielder edging closer to a full return to action. 

The former Brentford man signed for Leeds back in 2018, but has had his spell with the club disrupted through a number of injury problems, which have restricted him to 52 appearances in total for the Whites.

He didn’t play a single minute of action for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the 2020/21 season, as they finished ninth in the Premier League table last term.

But Forshaw has slowly been working his way back to fitness after a lengthy injury lay-off, and has featured in Leeds’ Under-23 matches against Guiseley and Fleetwood Town recently.

He’s since followed that up by getting through 45 minutes of action against Dutch side Ajax on Wednesday afternoon, although his efforts weren’t quite enough to stop them from slipping two goals down at half time in their most recent pre-season clash.

Plenty of the faithful took to social media to issue their thoughts on Forshaw, as he looks to find more minutes during pre-season for the Whites.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from below…

“I just can’t see how he will be up to the pace of the Premier League after being out for so long.”

“I just don’t get it. Was a decent-ish player in the Championship but can’t see him cutting it in the PL. Takes too long on the ball – a lot of the time he thinks he’s got more time than he has.”

“He could be the CM we need, good player just needs minutes and patience.”

“This lad is a very, very good footballer. Bielsa knows it too. Let’s watch this one play out. Could be fun.”

“With his age, fragility, and 10 months left on his contract, just can’t see him being loaned out to get kicked around for 20 games (unless Leeds plan to sell). Even if his medium future is (only) covering KP, he’s better suited to that or Struijk.”
