Leeds are looking more and more likely to complete a deal to sign 26-year-old Liverpool born midfielder Adam Forshaw. The player is set to undergo his medical tonight or tomorrow and Leeds are pushing for the deal to be done ahead of the weekend so he can play against Millwall.

Phil Hay and Adam Pope broke the news earlier today along with Sky Sports and the deal has moved very fast. The club were in direct competition to sign the player with Neil Warnock and Cardiff City but it seems the deal will go the way of Leeds. The reports suggested that Forshaw wanted the Leeds move rather than Cardiff and it seems like after matching the bid we have stolen the player form the grasp of the Welsh side. Forshaw isn’t in the plans of Tony Pulis who wants to move numerous first-team players out of the door to bring in his own and the likes of Adam Forshaw and Adam Clayton don’t suit his style of play.

Leeds are short of midfielders with Eunan O’Kane suspended, Ronaldo Vieira injured and Kalvin Phillips one yellow away from a two-game-ban. Mateusz Klich isn’t in the plans and that leaves us short, but I am of the opinion that Forshaw is a better player than a few of our options anyway and would compliment Ronaldo Vieira in the middle of the pitch. His main attributes are ball retention through a very good passing ability and protecting the ball. He may not be what everyone wants to see but his experience in this league will certainly add something to the squad. Our inability to control a game of football has been in evidence for a while, even when we win games.

The deal is expected to be done soon. More when we get it.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
