On January 18th 2018, Leeds United announced the signing of Adam Forshaw from Middlesbrough for £4.5 million.
The 27-year-old made his debut starting in Leeds’ 0–0 draw against Hull City, and then went on to suffer an injury in March which limited his amount of appearances.
Some supporters were pleased with the club’s decision to bring in Forshaw, as they took to the confirmation on Twitter to express their delight over the signing.
That’s a good singing, forshaw.

Great to get a proven quality Championship player, rather than total gambol with foreign unknown. Well done @andrearadri

Adam Forshaw started his career at Premier League side Everton and he was handed his debut in the Premier League and the Europa League by David Moyes as he featured against Wolves and BATE Borisov respectively.
The central midfielder later went on to join Brentford on a one-month youth loan, which ended up turning into a permanent move after impressing. He enjoyed some of his best days in the English capital as he managed to produce a number of goals and assists, which helped him secure a place in the League One PFA Team of the Year for the 2013/14 season.
Sadly, he didn’t enjoy a very successful time of things after making the move to Wigan Athletic as he only managed to make 17 appearances. Although, his experience at the Riverside Stadium was slightly better as he made 79 appearances, which included promotion to the Premier League.
On the 18th of January 2018, Leeds United secured the services of Forshaw for £4.5 million.
The 27-year-old made his debut starting in Leeds’ 0–0 draw against Hull City, and then went on to suffer an injury in March which limited his amount of appearances. Also, pre-season didn’t get much better for the Englishman as he suffered a toe injury, which kept him out for up to eight weeks.
However, it comes as no surprise that supporters were pleased to see him join the club as he has quickly established himself as one of Leeds United’s key promotion ingredients in the current campaign, with quality performances being the norm for the midfielder. He may not produce a large amount of goals or assists, but his passing and tackling ability has helped Marcelo Bielsa’s side massively.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
