Adam Forshaw has not been seen by Leeds for a while for a few reasons, including injury, and Phil Hay has provided an update on his future.
What Phil Hay had to say about Forshaw
Hay was asked about what the future holds for the player and he tweeted: “Still isn’t ready and it’s very hard to know what comes next for him. Been the best part of 18 months since he played in a game of any sort.”
Forshaw might not be seen in a Leeds shirt again
Forshaw could well move out on loa and return to Leeds at a later date to then compete for a first-team spot. The club are hoping to loan Forshaw out whenever he regains fitness, since the midfielder has played only once for the Elland Road-based side since August 2019 due to a mixture of injuries and him not being favoured by Bielsa.
The manager spoke about the midfielder in the past when he said: “He defends similar to Kalvin, he attacks similar to Klich. What he does close to Phillips doesn’t impede, it is not a problem for him when he goes close to Klich to attack. Always Adam, when he plays, is one of the players who runs more and not just in total distance, in sprints in high intensity.”
The 29-year-old only made seven league appearances in the 2019/20 season for the Whites and racked up a rating of 6.76 (Whoscored).
However, the midfield position is very strong at the club currently, and you can’t see Forshaw replacing any of the starting eleven any time soon. Thi,s combined with the latest update from the Athletic journalist, suggests that the club may well have seen the last of the player in a Leeds shirt.
