Wolves: Morgan Gibbs-White update revealed

Wolverhampton Wanderers continue to insist that midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is not for sale after he was linked with a move to Nottingham Forest.

What’s the story?

Journalist Liam Keen tweeted an update on the situation yesterday saying:

“Rumours that Morgan Gibbs-White is close to joining Forest are untrue. The newly-promoted club haven’t even been in touch. Wolves consider him not for sale.”

The news comes after a journalist at The Guardian also tweeted yesterday that the move was “close“. The contrasting reports have caused a lot of confusion, but because of Keen’s reliability, it’s expected he will stay.

Supporters will be buzzing

Given his impressive performances whilst on loan at Sheffield United last season, and his excellent form in pre-season, it’s not a surprise that the club want to keep him.

Supporters will be buzzing to hear the news that he’s not off to Forest and will hope he soon signs a new contract committing his long-term future to the Old Gold.

His current deal expires in 2024 and although he’s been offered new terms, he’s yet to sign. Journalist Alex Crook spoke with GiveMeSport earlier this month and said it could be because “he doesn’t feel appreciated”.

Will Gibbs-White stay at Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Sending the Wolves academy graduate out on loan last season might have been a blow for the player, but the opportunities he had in Sheffield have only shown clubs just how good he is.

In 35 Championship appearances, he was directly involved in 20 goals which for a Midfielder is crazy. He also created 16 chances according to SofaScore and was crucial to the Blades securing a play-off place.

The 22-year-old will be a massive miss for them next season, and Wolves need to make sure they don’t miss him either. He can be like a new signing for manager Bruno Lage and could help massively in their quest to return to Europe.

At what football club's academy did Wolves captain Conor Coady graduate from?

It’s not just Forest who have shown an interest in the Englishman either, Everton reportedly had a bid turned down earlier this month.

At one stage Wolves were thinking of cashing in rather than letting his contract run down and were set to demand £30m for Gibbs-White.

Although that may seem a sensible move, he’s a huge talent, and if Lage gives him a big enough role he should be able to convince him to stay.

AND in other news: Lage can now axe “sloppy” dud with bid for £8m Wolves target, Thomas Muller hates him…
