Morgan Gibbs-White is reportedly thought to have been left scarred by his treatment by Wolves last season.
According to The Athletic, the midfielder does not forget how he was recalled mid-season by the club last season from his loan spell with Swansea City.
Gibbs-White had been in fettle at the Liberty Stadium.
He started really well, but picked up a foot injury early doors which meant a few months on the sidelines.
In the end, instead of leaving him in place to try and pick back up where he left off, Wolves brought Gibbs-White back to Molineux in January. He had made just six appearances for the Swans.
Upon returning to Wolves, Gibbs-White made a handful of appearances, but struggled to get a proper chance.
At the time, Wolves were not playing well and were struggling to pick up points.
Nuno Espirito Santo would regularly turn to the likes of Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho in midfield.
And in the wide areas players like Adama Traore, Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto were preferred.
Gibbs-White finished the 2020/21 campaign as one of Wanderers’ better performers. He did get a few more chances near the end once the club had ensured survival.
But overall he did struggle for minutes.
The Athletic have ran an article about the state of play for Wolves heading into the summer 2022 window.
Premier League clubs will look to purchase the best players in the Championship this summer, and Wolves’ Gibbs-White is certainly one of them right now.
He is said to want to play regularly. If Wolves can’t offer him regular football, it could be that he pushes for an exit.
Gibbs-White could push for game time assurances at Wolves this summer
It could well be that Gibbs-White heads back to Wolves this summer and seeks assurances about getting regular game time in 2022/23.
He has enjoyed a fantastic season on loan at Sheffield United.
He would not want to go back to being a bit-part player after being so influential for the Blades.
If Wolves cannot promise him he’ll get decent game time next season, it’s very possible he will seek to leave.
It was he that pushed to leave on loan last summer. One gets the feeling he’d look to facilitate a permanent exit if he felt it would be the best move for him.
