'Get rid', 'Flog him', 'Sell' - Some Leeds fans react on Twitter to Bielsa update on 28y/o

Leeds United fans are growing increasingly frustrated with how long it is taking for Adam Forshaw to recover from an injury that has kept him sidelined since September.

Forshaw, 28, has played just once in the Championship since September due to a hip injury, which Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth describes as “complicated”.

Marcelo Bielsa confirmed on Thursday, ahead of Leeds’ next fixture against Cardiff on Saturday, that Forshaw is unavailable to play once again and now fans are beginning to lose their patience over the midfielder.

Forshaw started the season strongly for Leeds in the centre of Bielsa’s midfield but it is not as though the Whites have missed the ex-Middlesbrough man during his absence.

They are top of the league, 11 points clear of third and appear to be on course for a long-awaited return to the Premier League.

And as they have not really missed Forshaw, some fans have suggested that the 28-year-old should be sold due to his lack of appearances for the side.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Will Leeds be find it that easy to sell a player who has been injured for several months? Who would want a half-fit player in January?

Bielsa is unlikely to want to change his squad up in the New Year so fans who want Forshaw sold, should probably give up all hope.
