Sources: Leeds to listen to offers for Adam Forshaw ahead of January – Football Insider

Leeds United are willing to listen to offers for Adam Forshaw in January, sources have told Football Insider.
The midfielder, 31, is out of contract at the end of the season and his future at Elland Road is up in the air.
Leeds have the option to extend that deal by a further 12 months, but that currently seems unlikely with Forshaw out of the side.
He has had just 47 minutes of Premier League action this season and has dropped to the fringes following the summer signings of Tyler Adams and Marc Roca.
Forshaw was a favourite of former manager Marcelo Bielsa despite being plagued by injuries.
He was awarded a contract extension in January even though he has made only 82 appearances in nearly five years at Leeds.

The midfielder was absent from Saturday’s (29 October) squad which beat Liverpool at Anfield due to a hernia injury which required surgery early last month.
Forshaw has racked up 82 appearances for the Whites during his five-year spell at the club – including 25 in the Premier League.
Midfield has not been a concern for Jesse Marsch’s side despite recent struggles for form – as summer signings Adams and Roca have been impressive despite Leeds United’s lowly 15th-place berth.
The Elland Road club face Bournemouth at home on Saturday (5 November) before travelling to Tottenham on 12 November in their last fixture before the Qatar World Cup.
Another three points could help keep the lions at bay for under-pressure boss Marsch.
Football Insider revealed before the win over Liverpool (29 October) that Leeds United are putting out early feelers as they lay the groundwork for appointing a new manager.
