Adam Forshaw says he will be back in full training within two or three weeks following a lengthy injury lay-off.

The midfielder has been limited to just seven appearances this season under Marcelo Bielsa after suffering a complex hip problem last summer.

Forshaw initially attempted to battle through the injury in the early stages of the season but made his last appearance for the Whites in September at Charlton.

The 28-year-old then underwent season-ending surgery in February in Colorado at the world-renowned Steadman Clinic after failing to find a cure for the issue.

Forshaw, though, gave an update on his condition on Sunday ahead of the victory over Swansea City and revealed he is now close to a return to full training at Thorp Arch.

"Brilliant, really well," Forshaw told LUTV over his rehab.

"I'm probably two, three weeks away from being in full training with the team.

"Unfortunately I'm going to miss the end of the season but in the grand scheme of things, I'll be ready to go with the team for the first day of pre-season if everything goes well."
