In conversation with a Leeds fan, Whites covering journalist Adam Pope has revealed that Adam Forshaw is ahead of schedule in terms of his return from injury at the moment.
The midfielder has been struggling with fitness problems for most of this season and it has seemed as though, every time he has got near to recovery, another issue has come up.
Indeed, he has been on crutches for much of the last few weeks but it seems as though he is coming off of them now.
Pope revealed in a reply to a fan on Twitter:
He’s off crutches next week. Says he is ahead of schedule & was always aiming for next season.

It sounds as though the midfielder still won’t be playing for the club this season, despite the current break, and he’ll be aiming to be back in action for 20/21.
Should we keep Casilla?
He’s ahead of schedule, too, but whether or not that can count for much at the moment is up for debate, given how short he is going to be of both general and match fitness.
One thing to be positive about, though, is that he is at least getting rid of the crutches, so now the club will be able to really see where he is at.
There’s also no need to really rush him given the form of the likes of Kalvin Phillips, so hopefully the club can bring him back to full speed with kid gloves over the coming months and he’ll return.
He’s a player that Marcelo Bielsa is fond of, too, so the Argentine will be hoping to see him back in the fold.
