‘This is worrying’: Pundit reacts to Leeds’ talks over selling ‘very good player’

Sky Sports pundit Danny Mills has given praises to Adam Forshaw, whom he believes is a ‘very good player’, amid talks of a possible exit from Leeds United this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa had an opportunity to secure automatic promotion into the Premier League last season but Leeds settled for a play-off spot towards the end of the campaign.

After losing the play-off tie against Derby County, it is back to the drawing board for the Leeds boss and this summer might see him reshuffle his squad.

A number of players may be sold for profit by the club, with Jack Clarke’s move to Tottenham Hotspur already confirmed, although the youngster will return to the club on loan next season.

Adam Forshaw is another player who could be the subject of more transfer business from the club, with a report by Football Insider already claiming that Leeds have held talks with Fulham over selling the midfielder.

Dany Mills has spoken about the potential of the 27-year-old being sold by Marcelo Bielsa this summer.

“I’ve seen that Forshaw might be leaving,” Mills told Football Insider. “I don’t think that would be a bid thing for Leeds. If you lose Forshaw and keep hold of Kalvin Phillips and Jamie Shackleton, you can accept that.

“When you are a Championship club you don’t have the money and finances to keep everyone. That is the situation Leeds are in.

“Forshaw has been good for Leeds and he’s a very good player. To lose him, you think, ‘this is worrying’. But, if you have to lose him to keep hold of two more important players, suddenly you think, ‘okay, that’s something we can deal with’.”

Forshaw was signed by Leeds from Middlesbrough in January of last year for a fee of around £4.5million.

He has made 44 appearances for the Whites but his availability last season, in which he made 19 starts in 32 games, was affected by two serious injuries.

Fulham are looking to strengthen their midfield in the wake of relegation from the Premier League after just one season.
