Let’s all be honest here, the main thing everyone wanted to see in this January transfer window was Morgan Gibbs-White returning from Wolves, and it looks like Sheffield United have got their wish.

The midfield star has been missing over the last few weeks with injury. His absence coincided with the Blades heading into January, which sparked a mild panic that Wolves might well keep him after all. However, Wolves also made moves of their own in the window, and ultimately, Gibbs-White was left unaffected.

Thankfully for Sheffield United fans, that means he is now back at Bramall Lane. And over on Twitter, the Sheffield United admin team have come up trumps in showing Blades fans just what they wanted to see. Morgan Gibbs-White, back in full training.

Further, Paul Heckingbottom has also just confirmed in his presser that Gibbs-White is indeed back fully involved and ready to go. Ahead of Birmingham City this Friday, that is a huge boost. Especially so, given Heckingbottom has confirmed Rhian Brewster has picked up a significant hamstring injury too.

Grading Every Club's January Transfer Window

“Morgan was in today. Morgan’s first day back with the group, which is great. We’ve got him back, training well,” the Blades boss said on Gibbs-White.

Our View: Gibbs-White Return Huge For Sheffield United

If he is fit enough to play on Friday, then he comes straight back into the starting XI. Morgan Gibbs-White has been our best player this season and while the wins have still come in his absence, we have missed him.

Brewster’s absence makes Gibbs-White’s return all the more important. He could very well come back into the fold immediately, with Iliman Ndiaye deployed further up the pitch next to Billy Sharp.

One thing is for sure, though, and that’s we have a much better chance of beating Birmingham with Gibbs-White available for selection.
