Local-born Adam joined Everton at the age of eight and the play-making youngster impressed year on year.
In the summer of 2008 he was offered a place as a first-year scholar with a view to becoming a regular feature with the Under-18s.
Injury saw him miss much of the 2008/09 season, but in December 2009, he was handed a first team debut in the Europa League dead rubber against BATE Borisov in December 2009.
In the 2010/11 campaign Forshaw scored at stunning goal at Anfield for the reserves against Liverpool, and a fortnight later he was named on the bench for the first team as they drew 2-2 with Aston Villa at Goodison Park.
A Premier League debut followed as he came on as a substitute late on in the 3-0 win over Wolves.
In the summer of 2011 Forshaw agreed a new one-year contract, and in February 2012 he joined Brentford on a month's loan.
After a successful extended spell with the Bees, the Reserve team Player of the Year made the move to Griffin Park permanent on 21 May, 2012 for an undisclosed fee.
