Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Bruno Lage has insisted he is ‘very happy’ with how Morgan Gibbs-White is doing at Sheffield United.

The midfielder is spending the season on loan at Bramall Lane.

It’s been a very productive spell so far for the 21-year-old.

He’s made 11 appearances so far across all competitions and scored four goals. He has also laid on a couple of assists.

Blades boss Slavisa Jokanovic recently stated he thinks the midfielder will want to remain at Bramall Lane for the whole season.

Last term, Wolves recalled Gibbs-White from his loan spell at Swansea City.

Things were different then. The player had just recovered from injury, and Wolves needed a bit of extra cover at Molineux.

But it’s not out of the question the club could recall him again.

Lage is certainly liking what he is seeing from the youngster so far.

He said (Express & Star): “I am very happy with Morgan.


“I look at him as a main player but when Hwang came, he felt he wouldn’t have more chances to play and he took the decision to go on loan.

“I am very happy with him and what he’s doing at the club.

“We are looking at our players on loan and watching the things they are doing. I am very happy with Morgan and the way he works with us and Sheffield United.”

Gibbs-White needs to remain where he is this time

Wolves should really be looking to keep Gibbs-White where he is and not be tempted to recall him again.

It is important he plays as much as possible in order to further his development.

Some never wanted him to go, including Lage himself.

But now that he’s there, he should be left to do his thing. It would be foolish to disrupt his momentum.

Wolves ought to be bringing in another central midfield option via the transfer market, and leaving Gibbs-White where he is.
