MIDFIELDER Tom Adeyemi has recovered from the virus that flattened him against Wolves and will travel on the Leeds United coach for Sunday’s Championship clash at Nottingham Forest.

A lethargic looking Adeyemi was subbed after half an hour of last Thursday’s 3-2 win at Molineux with head coach Steve Evans revealing afterwards that the Cardiff loanee probably had a virus.

The 24-year-old then missed Sunday’s 1-0 defeat of Preston North End at Elland Road but Evans reported the defensive midfielder in good condition at Thorp Arch on Wednesday morning.

Evans laughed: “I’ve just gone past him in the canteen and he was sitting there with a big bowl of breakfast so I take it he’s okay.

“He was looking well and smiling and chirpy.

“He was laid low for a couple of days with a virus and it’s never nice.

“He looked as if he was just devoid of any energy after 30 seconds at Wolves, never mind ten minutes, but he’s back and available and will be on the team coach going to Nottingham.”
