Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is set to have “a big role” at the club next season according to journalist Paul Brown.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the reporter said:
“Gibbs-White seems to be doing really well for Wolves in pre-season.
“From what we hear, the noises coming from the club are that he’s going to have quite a big role to play for them this season.”
The update follows speculation about the player’s departure after he failed to agree on a new contract at Molineux despite being offered one.
Supporters will be buzzing to hear that academy graduate Gibbs-White looks like he will stay at the club and be a key player for Bruno Lage’s side next season.
He also created 16 big chances according to SofaScore which proves just how much of an all-rounder he is.
With his current contract due to expire next summer, many clubs have seen this transfer window as an opportunity to buy a talented youngster at a cheap price.
However, his form last season, coupled with how well he has performed for the Old Gold during pre-season, seem to have persuaded Lage that he still has a lot to offer at Molineux.
He was also named as team captain last week for Wolves’ friendly in Spain against Levante which is a further sign that the club have no plans to let him go anytime soon.
But there is still a danger that he decides not to renew and leaves on a free transfer.
The Wanderers seem willing to take that risk and will hope that because of Gibbs-White’s connection to the club where he’s been his whole career, it won’t take much to persuade him that it’s is the best place for his development in the longer term.
