Leeds United will be without Adam Forshaw for the remainder of the season through injury, according to Football Insider.
With the Yorkshire club sat top of the Championship and close to promotion to the Premier League, excitement has been building around the return of the 2019/20 season. Having seen players gradually returning to training at the club’s Thorp Arch training ground, unfortunately it has been confirmed that midfielder Forshaw will miss the season’s run-in.
The 28-year-old has not been a regular figure this term for Leeds, having struggled with injury, but his experience and ability would have been useful for Marcelo Bielsa to utilise as he edges closer to automatic promotion. A source close to the club told Football Insider that the midfielder’s long standing hip injury had not improved and therefore he would be unavailable.
Having featured very little this term for Leeds and with his niggling injury problems, you have to wonder if the former Sunderland man has played his last game for the club.
With Leeds edging closer to a Premier League return, Bielsa will likely be looking to put together a reliable and talented squad adequately equipped for the top flight. Forshaw is certainly both but his fitness problems are arguably something Bielsa could do without next term if the Whites are in the Premier League.
However, it is also worth noting that the Argentine is a big admirer of the midfielder and his ability to control and dictate games.
Do you think Leeds will miss Forshaw for the rest of this season? Let us know in the comments section below…
