Morgan Gibbs-White posts on Instagram after scooping Player of the Season award

Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has won both the Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season awards at Sheffield United.

The 22-year-old was the big winner at the Blades’ end-of-season awards ceremony, after a truly fantastic campaign.

He again played a starring role for United in their final game of the season, helping himself to a goal and an assist in a 4-0 win against champions Fulham.

That result secured United’s place in the play-offs.

Gibbs-White got the ball rolling after just 10 minutes, turning in Oliver Norwood’s cross with a near-post header.

Gibbs-White then turned provider, squaring for Iliman Ndiaye for an easy finish for 2-0.

The England U21 international’s day would get even better later on, as he picked up the Player and Young Player of the Season awards for his amazing contributions this season.

It wasn’t quite a clean sweep though, with goalkeeper Wes Foderingham winning Players’ Player.

Gibbs-White took to Instagram to mark his proud moment, and there were many comments of congratulations for the youngster.

Former Wolves captain Danny Batth wrote ‘Well deserved bro – congratulations keep goin’.

Ex-Molineux striker Benik Afobe added ‘Drippy’.

Nelson Semedo said ‘Clean’, while John Ruddy and Dion Sanderson both left emojis of support.

£34 million AS Roma striker and England international Tammy Abraham showed his appreciation by leaving a couple of clapping emojis and also a fire emoji.

A fitting end to 2021/22 for Wolves star Gibbs-White as midfielder scoops Player and Young Player of the Season awards

It is fantastic to see Gibbs-White’s hard work this season acknowledged in the form of two big awards.

Bruno Lage never wanted Gibbs-White to depart on loan. It was the player that pushed for the move, and it has done him the world of good.

Prior to his stint at Bramall Lane, Gibbs-White hadn’t had consistency in his career.

This term he has been able to play regularly and freely and his contributions have helped Sheffield United into the play-offs.

The situation bodes well for Wolves.

Ultimately, he will either become a solid midfield option for the first-team next season. Or he could be sold for quite a lot of money given what’s done in 2021/22.
