Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White has made a fine start to his loan move at Sheffield United.

The midfielder has now made nine appearances for the club after coming back into the starting XI on Saturday against Blackpool.

Up to now, he has scored three goals for the Blades, and also provided a couple of assists.

Not everybody was happy when news of Gibbs-White’s loan exit filtered through on transfer deadline day.

The 21-year-old had been looking sharp in pre-season. He had also looked good in his final few appearances of 2020/21.

Ultimately it was felt a temporary move would be good for Gibbs-White. After all, his loan spell at Swansea City last season had started promisingly before he picked up an ankle injury. Wolves then needed him to return to provide cover.

The player wanted to go and play, and here we are.

So far it is really working out, and according to The Athletic, Wolves are very pleased with Gibbs-White’s progress.


They claim Wolves are keeping close tabs on him, and Matt Jackson – the club’s Strategic Player Marketing Manager – is in regular contact with him.

Apparently, Wolves do have a recall option on Gibbs-White, and Wolves will ‘consider it’.

Ideally though, they want to leave him in place at Bramall Lane given he has been getting regular minutes.

Wolves shouldn’t be tempted to recall Gibbs-White

Wolves should certainly be looking to keep Gibbs-White where he is.

It is paramount that he continues to play regularly, and the Championship is a brilliant learning environment.

Wolves should be looking to use the transfer market to add depth in midfield.

Recalling Gibbs-White (again) to provide cover would be a lazy decision that would disrupt his rhythm and impact his development.
