Sheffield United fans all want to keep hold of Morgan Gibbs-White, but a host of clubs including Fulham, Leeds and Crystal Palace are now all keeping a close eye on the Wolves loanee.
Gibbs-White has been outstanding in red and white this season and once again produced the goods in midweek for the Blades. He laid on Billy Sharp for the second against Middlesbrough before scoring one of the goals of the season with a remarkable back-heeled effort to round off the scoring on the night.
The midfielder’s future lies in the Premier League. And according to TeamTalk, a number of clubs are keen on signing Gibbs-White, including United’s promotion rivals, Fulham.
TeamTalk claim that the Cottagers are watching Gibbs-White closely with their own promotion all but sealed. Beyond them, teams such as Leeds, Crystal Palace, and Southampton are all keeping tabs. With regards to Fulham, it is claimed Gibbs-White is seen as a potential replacement for the Liverpool-bound Fabio Carvalho.
Our View: Promotion A Must To Have Any Hope Of Landing Morgan Gibbs-White
There was a time when it looked like Dean Henderson might never be surpassed for best Blades loanee. However, Morgan Gibbs-White isn’t half putting up a fight with his form this season.
He has been nothing short of brilliant and his goals, assists, and crucially, work-rate, are making him stand out from the crowd at Bramall Lane and the Championship in general.
Of course, United must win promotion to have any hopes of signing him. We are looking at a £20m+ player here, along with Premier League wages. For now, we must simply just enjoy what he is bringing. But rest assured, if we do manage to sneak up, that this is a deal Paul Heckingbottom will be looking to push for.
