Wolves have reportedly offered Morgan Gibbs-White a new deal.

According to The Athletic, the club are looking to convince the player that his immediate future lies at Molineux, following a successful loan stint with Sheffield United.

Gibbs-White enjoyed a fantastic stint with the Blades which saw him finish the campaign with 12 goals and 10 assists to his name.

That haul of goal contributions saw him named their Player of the Season.

Just before moving to Bramall Lane, Wolves actually handed Gibbs-White a new contract.

But now the club are ready to reward the player with a new deal less than 12 months after that.

But it is stated that Gibbs-White may need some convincing to stay at Molineux.

After all, it was his decision last year to push for a loan move. He wanted to play regular football, and there was no guarantee of at the time.

Supposedly, Gibbs-White was left disappointed after being recalled from his spell at Swansea City in the 2020/21 season.

Wolves decided to bring him back to provide cover, but Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t use him all that much, turning to more experienced options like Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker in midfielder, and Pedro Neto, adama Traore and Daniel Podence out wide.

Lage has apparently spoken with Gibbs-White, but it is down to him.

It does seem that Wolves are now keen to get Gibbs-White back into the first-team picture.

And it would be fantastic if he wanted to stick around.

He was absolutely superb this season on loan at Sheffield United and has arguably shown he is ready for regular minutes in the Premier League.

Wolves are crying out for a midfield player who can provide goals and assists.

Obviously, there is a big step up in quality from the Championship to the Premier League.

But Gibbs-White simply must be kept this summer. There could well be come big offers incoming. We have already had claims of interest from Serie A champions AC Milan. But if he’s keen to stay then Wanderers must rebuff them.
