Report: Wolves to rebuff interest in Morgan Gibbs-White this summer

Wolves are reportedly ready to rebuff interest in Morgan Gibbs-White this summer, with Bruno Lage looking to give him a first-team chance.

The 22-year-old made 38 appearances for the Blades, and scored 12 goals and made nine assists.

His contributions helped United secure a place in the play-offs, and they will now be hoping his fine form can continue as they seek to secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Gibbs-White’s stunning campaign resulted in him scooping both the Player and Young Player of the Year award for United.

That is huge vindication for his decision to push for a loan move last year.

The stint has done Gibbs-White the world of good, and it seems Wolves are now ready to get him back involved with the first-team.

According to a report from TEAMtalk, Bruno Lage wants to hand Gibbs-White a chance to prove himself in pre-season ahead of 2022/23.

It is stated that Wolves are ready to rebuff any transfer interest in the player.

Apparently, Fulham, Leeds United and Burnley are all keen on the England U21 international.

Wolves in a fantastic position over Gibbs-White, as club reportedly prepare to rebuff interest

Wolves are really in a great position over Gibbs-White.

Ideally, he will become a part of Lage’s first-team squad for next season. He certainly seems ready to step up after the season he’s just had.

But if that is not to be, then Gibbs-White is surely going to end up making Wolves a lot of money in the transfer market.

Wolves not wanting him to depart, combined with the fact he signed a new deal last year, means he’d only depart for a big offer.

Whatever happens, Wolves are in a great position.
