Leeds United have announced that Adam Forshaw’s surgery was a success and that he is now on the road back to recovery.
Forshaw began the season as a key part of Marcelo Bielsa’s side but has not featured for the Whites since September.
The midfielder has been sidelined for the majority of the season with a hip injury and it was revealed earlier this week that he would undergo surgery to help fix the problem, meaning he would not return this season.
Prior to that announcement, the situation was a somewhat frustrating one for Leeds fans because very little was being communicated to them about Forshaw’s condition and when he would return.
They will likely be encouraged by this latest news, however, as the Yorkshire club revealed yesterday that the 28-year-old’s surgery had been a success and that his recovery was now underway.
Forshaw also took to Instagram to send a message following the operation, which appears to have taken place in Colorado in the United States.
Forshaw thanked fans for their messages of support and added: “Confident I’ll see you all in the Premier League”.
Leeds are second in the table as things stand and could move to within three points of league leaders West Bromwich Albion with a win today.

After what cannot have been an easy time for Forshaw, it’s great to see that the surgery was a success and he is on the mend.
It’s positive for Leeds fans as well and you feel they may just appreciate being kept abreast of what’s going on after how little information was given while the midfielder was out.
You’d question whether it was a mistake not to look to sign a replacement for the midfielder in January as his absence now puts further strain on the Whites squad.
As we head into the business end of the season another capable midfielder would no go amiss for Leeds.
They’ll be hoping they don’t look back on that decision with regret
