Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Morgan Gibbs-White appears to be catching the eye already at Sheffield United.

The midfielder is spending the season at Bramall Lane, after departing Molineux on transfer deadline day.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

The move did not go down well with a lot of Wolves fans.

Lots of people felt letting Gibbs-White leave was a risk given the lack of midfield options.

But what’s done is done, and the 21-year-old is now a Blade for the time being.

Having gone straight into the international break, Gibbs-White obviously hasn’t yet played for United.

But he has been training with his new club, and defender Chris Basham has heaped praise on him.

He said (via Sheffield Star): “Morgan has been in and has been a breath of fresh air.

“He glides past players, he’s big, he’s strong, he’s powerful – he’s everything that a Wolves player is, basically. We’ve played against them the past few years and that’s what he is.”

The Blades face Peterborough United on Saturday, and Gibbs-White will be in contention for a first appearance.

Gibbs-White setting the tone early

It is great to hear Gibbs-White coming in for praise before he has even turned out in an actual game.

Clearly the youngster is keen to make an impression early doors.

It’s a big season for him, having not featured that much last season.

Injury robbed him of some important development time at Swansea City, and then Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t give him that many chances after recalling him in January.

Hopefully he gets regular minutes under Slavisa Jokanovic, and returns to the Black Country a much-improved player.
