Wolves face summer battle to keep Gibbs-White

Wolverhampton Wanderers look as though they may face a summer battle to keep hold of their highly rated midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

That is according to a report from Yorkshire Live, who interviewed 22-year-old.

What’s the word?

When pushed on his Wolves future, the Old Gold loanee said: “I have had ongoing conversations throughout the season. I was going to go back in January but wanted to stay here. Anything is possible. Whether up or down I absolutely love this place.”

With Gibbs-White named as Sheffield United’s player of the season, the Yorkshire club clearly reciprocate those feeling towards the starlet, something which is bound to worry the Wolves faithful.

Lage surely gutted

With this latest admission coming from the mouth of Gibbs-White, Wolves manager Bruno Lage will surely have his reservations as to whether he will have the luxury of including the 22-year-old in his plans for next season.

Should Gibbs-White play as a CF for Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The versatile midfielder, who been described as a “breath of fresh air” by Sheffield United team-mate Chris Basham, has had an unbelievable campaign in the Championship and has played in advanced positions for the Blades, having found his goalscoring touch whilst forming a brilliant partnership with Iliman Ndiaye along the way.

On his relationship with the former Boreham Wood talent, Gibbs-White said: “When I first came here we clicked straight away with the way we played in training. All the boys hate it when we are on the same 5-a-side team. When we are on the pitch I just know where he is going to be you’re on the same wavelength he enjoys football and plays with a smile on his face he’s creative and he’s like me, so I have seen that in him straight away.”

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

In the Championship, Gibbs-White has scored the same amount of goals (11) as Wolves duo Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee-chan combined in the Premier League – a real statement from the England under-21 international, who has registered a total of 20 goal contributions in 35 domestic appearances.

He could offer serious potency to the Wolves attack next season and could even play as a centre-forward for the Old Gold, having struck four goals and two assists in the six games that he functioned as a striker for Sheffield United this season.

Therefore, if the 22-year-old is offered a permanent deal by the Blades and if he accepts it, Lage could be left gutted at the prospect of seeing the talented and prolific youngster slip through the Molineux net.
