Leeds fans are delighted with the news that they are in talks over signing Middlesborough midfielder Adam Forshaw.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that Leeds are “confident” of signing the £2.5m-rated player, but face competition from Cardiff.

Leeds believe that Forshaw himself is keen on a move to Leeds and are willing to match Cardiff’s offer of £2.5million.

Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post, added to the fevered speculation when he replied to a Leeds fan on Twitter, saying that Leeds were “extremely keen” to sign the player.

Leeds’ interest in Forhsaw was revealed exclusively by Football Insider on Tuesday, when we said that Christiansen was looking for players who could drive from midfield to boost his squad’s chances of reaching the play-offs.

The latest news was released by Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie on his Twitter page on Wednesday lunchtime as the deal is seemingly accelerating.

He claimed that Leeds were now “in talks” to sign Forshaw.

Leeds fans are delighted with the news and took to Twitter to rave about the player’s qualities.

Here is a selection of the best tweets from Leeds fans:

However, one Leeds fan was a dissenting voice. He said that Leeds need to be looking at signing a striker instead.

In other Leeds United news, this £1.5million Whites player is highly likely to exit Elland Road.
