Wolverhampton Wanderers-owned Morgan Gibbs-White has made a sensational start to life on loan at Sheffield United.

In addition to grabbing an assist, the creative midfielder scored a wonderful goal in the second half against Peterborough United yesterday.

It was a fruitful afternoon for the Blades, who won 5-2 at home to Peterborough in the Championship.

Gibbs-White will spend the season on loan at the South Yorkshire club. Wolves do have a recall option in January.

After today, the Blades will be hoping to keep hold of the loanee for the entire season. Especially, considering that they had made a poor start to the season prior to Gibbs-White’s arrival, winning just one game.

Loan decision paying off

With Wolves not signing anybody on transfer deadline day, it appeared a bold move letting Gibbs-White leave on loan.

Firstly, the Premier League club’s squad is wafer-thin with just 23 first-team players. Secondly, Bruno Lage wanted him in his first team plans.

 

Another factor was that it appeared Wolves were close to signing a new midfielder on deadline day. Despite this, talks broke down with reported targets Renato Sanches and Boubakar Kamara.

However, the academy product was not likely to be in the starting eleven and decided he needed more minutes.

It appears to be a mature decision from Gibbs-White, who showed his quality on his debut yesterday
