Morgan Gibbs-White came in for yet more praise at the weekend with Barnsley head coach Poya Asbaghi branding the midfielder ‘outstanding’.

The star was making his 30th appearance of the season for the club.

Gibbs-White has had better performances this term, but he still managed to get himself on the scoresheet.

He is now up to 10 for the season, and he has also laid on seven assists.

It has been a very productive spell for Gibbs-White, and it is going to be really interesting to see what happens with him in the summer.

Gibbs-White caught the eye of Barnsley head coach Asbaghi, who said of the youngster after the game (Yorkshire Live): “He’s a really good player. I think Sheffield United have a lot of good players, but he is the most outstanding one.

“Of course we respect him and what he can do. He’s good like he showed for the goal, scoring and running in behind, but he is so good when he drops in-between the centre backs and the midfield to receive the ball to attack the spaces from there.”

Gibbs-White’s latest strike helped United seal a 2-0 win to keep their promotion hopes very much alive.

They are now up to fifth in the table. Blackburn Rovers are a place below on the same points tally (61). Middlesbrough are seventh on 59 but have a game in hand.

Gibbs-White is being that influential he’s now got opposition coaches singing his praises.

Wolves could not really have hoped for the midfielder’s loan spell to have gone much better.

His contributions have given Sheffield United a brilliant chance of finishing in the play-off place. And it would be so good if he helped the club achieve promotion to the Premier League.

The spell has clearly done wonders for his development.

It would be nice to think he’d want to come back to Wolves and fight for his place in the first-team next season.

But conversations need to be had. It’s difficult to believe United wouldn’t try really hard to sign him permanently.
