Sources: Leeds United set to let Adam Forshaw go

Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw is expected to leave the club this summer and become a free agent, sources have told Football Insider.

The 31-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and the Yorkshire club are not planning on offering him a new deal.

Forshaw’s time at Elland Road has been hugely impacted by injuries, and the club view it as too much of a risk to offer him a new deal when there is so much doubt surrounding his availability.

Forshaw was named on the bench for Leeds’ 5-1 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend, but the English midfielder was unable to build on his six appearances this season.

He has played just 247 minutes of first-team football in the 2022/23 campaign, with his last appearance for the side coming on New Year’s Eve against Newcastle United.

Forshaw has played only one full 90-minute match all season – Leeds’ 3-1 win over Barnsley in the EFL Cup back in August.

He suffered a major hip injury during Leeds’ 2019/20 promotion season and ended up missing 71 matches and spending 560 days on the sidelines as a result.

During his time out with injury, Forshaw told The Athletic that he “wasn’t sure I would play football at any level again”.

“It was the worst time I’ve had in my career,” he added.

The former Middlesbrough, Wigan and Brentford midfielder is now set to become a free agent in the summer.

It was revealed by Football Insider sources ahead of the January transfer window that multiple Championship clubs were interested in signing Forshaw.
