Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is currently out on loan at Sheffield United.

He will be there until January at the earliest, when Wolves will have the opportunity to recall him if they want.

That is what Wolves did when Gibbs-White was at Swansea last season, and Blades boss Slavisa Jokanovic has had his say on the situation.

As per the Sheffield Star, he said: “If they don’t need him, then he plays some good games for us and suddenly they do need him, well, then they must know something I don’t know. Take your time, that is better.

“I know there exists this possibility (that Gibbs-White could be recalled). But you must also not confuse the player, there is no point in that.


“I believe he would rather stay here and play with us than be on the bench, maybe for some time. That is what I think.

“Morgan is an important player for us, but he is not our player. But I hope he stays with us and my wish is simple – to continue working with him going forward. He is important for us.”

Wolves’ decision on Gibbs-White may well depend on whether they sign a new midfielder in January.

It is better for Gibbs-White to be playing regularly, but Wolves do not want to leave themselves short.

The loan is working out so far, but it is surely not set in stone yet that Gibbs-White will spend the whole season in Sheffield.
