View: Adam Forshaw could stay at Leeds United until 2024

Leeds United has announced that Adam Forshaw has signed a new deal until 2023 with a 12-month extension included in the deal. 

If all goes well from now until the end of his new deal, the Englishman should look to extend his contract at Elland Road.

Leeds risked losing the midfielder on a free in the summer but his incredible comeback after a near two-year injury saw the 30-year-old penned to a new deal.

The Mirror’s David Anderson took to his personal Twitter to share the news: “Adam Forshaw has agreed a new one-year deal with Leeds until 2023 with the option of a further 12 months.”

Great news

Forshaw is a player who must be respected more. He is a key senior figure in this Leeds squad and has more than earned this new contract. 

Marcelo Bielsa-type players can’t be ignored with the Whites desperate to make their squad more robust and he is certainly one of them. 

Not long ago it was hard to see Forshaw playing again for the Whites, never mind a new deal, which is real credit to the hard work and dedication he has shown the club. 

For obvious reasons Leeds have penned him to another year at Elland Road, there is no denying he is getting on aged 30. 

The ball is in his court now, if he continues to impress, he continues to be a Leeds United player. 

The potential of another 12 month extension in 2023 is a great sign of respect for the player and a real motivator for him to continue to give his all to the club.
