It was a knee issue that forced the 21-year-old onto the sidelines. And Gibbs-White had been back at Wolves receiving treatment.

The Sheffield Star report he is now back in South Yorkshire, and is undergoing an individually tailored conditioning programme.

Paul Heckingbottom said: “Morgan has been in today. That’s his first day back with the group.”

Blades fans will be hoping to see him back on the pitch very soon.

Gibbs-White has enjoyed a fantastic spell at Bramall Lane so far.

He has made 19 appearances and scored six goals. He has also laid on four assists.

Unlike last season, Wolves made the decision to keep Gibbs-White where he is for the rest of the season.

Last term, Gibbs-White returned to the club after only playing a handful of games for Swansea City due to an ankle injury.

He didn’t get many games under Nuno Espirito Santo in the second of 2020/21. Although he didn’t finish the campaign as a one of the team’s better performers.

He then went on to have a strong pre-season. Conor Coady said that he had been ‘brilliant’, and Lage wanted the star to stay put. Ultimately though, he felt he needed to get out and play in 2021/22.

Hopefully Gibbs-White can enjoy a productive second half of the season with Sheffield United.

He has made a great start, and it was a shame about his injury, although he hasn’t actually ended up missing too many games.

Joao Moutinho is out of contract at Wolves in the summer. And transfer speculation won’t go away about Ruben Neves.

There is a chance Wolves officials will be keeping a very close eye on Gibbs-White from here on in.

It’s quite possible he could have a bigger role to play for the first-team next season.
