Opinion: Swansea must make a January loan move for Morgan Gibbs-White

Swansea have not had the best start to life back in the Championship this season, as the club currently sit in ninth place in the table, but a couple of January signings could change their fortunes around quickly in the hugely competitive league, and they should start with Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White.

What’s the situation?

The Swans may be in mid-table but they are just seven points behind the top two Leeds United and Norwich City. They are also just three points off the play-off places, and finishing anywhere from sixth or above would surely represent a successful season.

Graham Potter took over from Carlos Carvalhal in the summer and immediately began shipping out the old guard and replacing them with a young squad that is full of talent.

However, despite their reasonable start to the campaign the Swans could add an extra central midfielder to provide some more competition and strength in depth, and Gibbs-White would certainly fit with Potter’s philosophy.

Exciting talent

The 18-year-old Wolves ace, whom England manager Gareth Southgate reportedly admires, has made five substitute appearances in the Premier League so far, and impressed when getting his longest stint of almost 30 minutes from the bench against Tottenham on Saturday evening.

However, the West Midlands side are now out of the Carabao Cup and opportunities for starts could become rarer for the youngster, meaning a loan move to the Championship could be his best bet in January.

Gibbs-White is an England U19 international and was a member of the triumphant U17 World Cup squad last year.

So, Swansea fans, would you support a temporary move for the young star in January? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
