Beren Cross claims that Adam Forshaw is back in Leeds United training

Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw has returned to first-team training ahead of the 2021/22 season, according to Beren Cross.

The Leeds Live reporter speaking on the paper’s interactive blog, claimed that he has been “told” that the 29-year-old “had been involved” in training. Cross then added that his situation would probably become more clear “when we see” the squads that Marcelo Bielsa selects for the Whites’ friendlies.

Forshaw has had an absolute nightmare for Leeds, and this injury that he picked up in September 2019 has nearly deprived him of two years of football, but finally, he seems like he could be over it.

Delightful news!

It is hard to imagine what Forshaw has been through since he picked up that injury. He hasn’t kicked a ball in anger since very early into the 2019/20 season.

Since then, a lot of things have happened, and you would have to say that Forshaw is going to face a battle to get back into the first team. Stuart Dallas emerged as a sublime central midfielder, while Leeds are seeking to add another one [Yorkshire Evening Post].

So Forshaw already faces an uphill struggle to play first-team football and potentially earn a new deal.

The former Middlesbrough midfielder will be out of contract next summer, and if he wants to stay on at Elland Road, this is a huge season for him.

However, he probably isn’t worried about any of that just yet; he is probably just delighted to be back training with the first team.

Hopefully, he gets some minutes in the upcoming friendlies, and most importantly, doesn’t pick up any more injuries.

He has been through enough over the past two years, and he really doesn’t need more injury woe.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are set to make another signing as player has said goodbye to his current club.
