I’M GLAD OF BORO MOVE FORSHAW!
Adam ends Wigan woe
ADAM Forshaw says he’s glad to put his torrid time at Wigan to bed after swapping a relegation battle for a promotion push with Middlesbrough.
The 23-year-old joined the Latics in the summer from Brentford to link up with old Bees boss Uwe Rosler.
However, the German was sacked in November and Forshaw’s form suffered.
But the midfielder has been given a route out of Lancashire with Championship high-flyers Boro and intends to take his chance this time round.
“I loved my two years at Brentford. We got promoted and when I found out that Wigan wanted me, I was over the moon,” said Forshaw. “I believed it was going to be a great move, something that would be good for my career.
“Unfortunately, it proved not to be. It was a tough five or six months and, like I said, when this chance arose I grabbed it with both hands.
“We were having a bad time on the pitch. There were some great players there and a lot of people say they can’t understand why they are in that position. It’s hard to put your finger on it.
“But I’m now a Middles- brough player and I’m relishing the challenge here.
“The style of play is really good. It’s a strong squad and I have just got to try my hardest to contribute when I am needed.”
Boro fans hoping that Forshaw is joined by new additions before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday are likely to be disappointed, boss Aitor Karanka has confirmed.
However, the Riverside faithful will be encouraged to hear Karanka is under no pressure to sell any of his top performers.
“The only position where we were working to bring someone in was in midfield and Adam is here so at the moment everything is okay,” said Karanka.
“Always, the transfer window can have surprises but I don't expect anything.”
