Morgan Gibbs-White is currently out on loan at Sheffield United in the Championship, and got two assists in their weekend win at Cardiff.
The Blades will also travel to Molineux in the third round of the FA Cup next month, and Gibbs-White could conceivably be a Wolves player again by then if Bruno Lage opts to recall him.
Gibbs-White’s United teammate David McGoldrick has told the Sheffield Star that he hopes that doesn’t happen and that the midfielder can keep playing regular football at Bramall Lane.
“He’s got the world at his feet. He’s a great kid and great player. He’s got all the ability in the world but he just needs to play games,” McGoldrick said of Gibbs-White.
“He’s doing that here. He’s expressing himself and has the licence to be a free spirit. We want him to go and create things. He’s going to lose the ball sometimes, but all good players do that.
“As long as it’s in the right positions and as long as he keeps scoring goals like that, I don’t mind what else he does.”
Wolves are lacking central midfield depth but Lage may well see Gibbs-White as more of an option in the front three, where he has more choices already.
It remains to be seen what Wolves opt to do with the squad already looking thin going into the frantic festive period.
Gibbs-White has clearly made an impression on McGoldrick and his loan in the second tier is going well. That is all he can do; keep on scoring goals and setting them up while Wolves decide his next move.
