Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw will be out for the rest of the season as he prepares to travel to the United States for hip surgery. He has not played for Leeds since the defeat away to Charlton in September.
Forshaw, 28, will undergo the surgery at the Steadman Clinic in Colorado. A club statement read: “Knowing surgery was likely to end his season, Forshaw and the Leeds United medical team have explored every possible alternative action”.
“Unfortunately all parties have now decided the time has come for Adam to go under the knife to allow him to return in time for pre-season.”
Leeds signed Forshaw from Middlesbrough for £4.5min 2018 on a four-and-a-half-year contract. Leed United remain second in the Championship after drawing 1 all with promotion rivals Brentford although they’ll be overtaken by Fulham if they beat Millwall on Wednesday.
