While Sheffield United fans will be itching to see Morgan Gibbs-White in red and white again, Wolves have no such plans to send their man back to Bramall Lane.
Gibbs-White arrived at Bramall Lane in the summer when Slavisa Jokanovic was in charge. There was excitement around his signing at the time. However, few could have imagined he’d have done quite as well as he has done. The England under-21 star is on course to hit double figures in both goals and assists. Just one more assist in the playoffs will make that a reality, and on current form you wouldn’t back against him achieving it.
But while that form has seen United fans clamour to see Gibbs-White come back next season, TeamTalk has reported that there is no such thought process at Wolves. TeamTalk’s report from this weekend claims that Bruno Lage is ready to seize upon Gibbs-White’s good form and give him a chance in the Premier League next season.
Wolves have an abundance of talent in their ranks but could lose key midfield players such as Ruben Neves. That could open the door for Gibbs-White, who will be determined to prove his worth.
Reports earlier this week had suggested that Gibbs-White will seek a move if no minutes are offered up at Molineux.
Our View: Gibbs-White Move More Of A Dream For Sheffield United
While we all want him to sign, the reality is that we only bring Gibbs-White back if we win promotion, and if we’re willing to spend north of £25m on him. And even then, we’d face huge competition.
Ultimately, Sheffield United fans might just have to make do with enjoying what we’ve seen of the Wolves man and put it into the good memory books.
For Gibbs-White, it will always be about proving himself at the highest level possible. If that’s with Wolves under Lage, then good luck to him. But if he fancies the move back to The Lane, then we’ll all welcome him with open arms.
