Dave Edwards has tipped Morgan Gibbs-White to be a surprise package in the Premier League in 2022/23.
Wolves’ season gets underway this Saturday, with Leeds United the opponents at Elland Road.
Supporters are feeling a little anxious given the lack of transfer activity so far.
But the team has been looking good in pre-season, so there is also some optimism.
One man who has been looking particularly sharp in recent weeks is Gibbs-White, who is back in the picture after a successful loan spell at Sheffield United last term.
Gibbs-White has seen plenty of minutes in Alicante and the Algarve, and seemingly stands a great chance of starting Wolves’ first game against the Whites.
Edwards has been very encouraged by what he’s seen of late, and believes the youngster could be set to shine for Wanderers.
He wrote in his Express & Star column: “Morgan Gibbs-White has come back and it looks like it could be his year. I don’t think Wolves will want to sell him, it’d be such a shame having put in so much academy work with him, to all of a sudden be worth £25 million – £30 million.
“For Morgan to sign a new deal he will have to play every week. I think he’ll fly at the start of this season and be a real surprise package in the Premier League.”
Gibbs-White must be kept and played regularly as Dave Edwards makes prediction
Gibbs-White had a wonderful season in 2021/22 and he was continued to look very bright in pre-season for Wolves.
It is clear that he is now a more mature player.
He deserves a chance to start regularly for Wolves in the Premier League.
Edwards could well be right in that Gibbs-White will fly. He’s full of confidence at the moment, and carries a real goal threat which is something Wolves badly need.
It would be a foolish decision to cash in when the squad is as thin as it is.
