Morgan Gibbs-White has started the 2021/22 season with a bang.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster is currently on loan at Sheffield United, leaving Molineux on transfer deadline day.

The move came as a surprise, and the player also signed a new deal before moving.

Some felt Gibbs-White had a role to play under Bruno Lage.

The 45-year-old has also since admitted he had wanted to keep the 21-year-old.

But he’ll spend his time in the Championship, and life is already going well.

He has bagged a goal in each of his two games so far.

They follow his terrific strike for Wolves against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.

Gibbs-White has already struck up a solid partnership with Iliman Ndiaye, and Sander Berge has been thoroughly impressed with the pair.

The Norway international, whom the Blades valued at £21 million in the summer (Homme du Match), said (via Sheffield Star): “You can tell they have so many qualities.

“They are young, they move their feet really quick. They have a quick mindset, they read the game well and they enjoy and flourish by playing up there.

 

“They have qualities where they can beat the man. They can set up for one-two and they are very, very good.”

While some people didn’t want him to go, including the manager, there is a sense that this move could be great for Gibbs-White.

The star looked really promising at Swansea City last term before he broke his ankle.

There is a very good chance he can thrive in the Championship if he gets regular minutes.

Great signs about MGW early doors

It is fantastic that Gibbs-White has started so well.

And it’s good to hear about him striking up a great partnership with someone already.

Hopefully Slavisa Jokanovic will be relying on him quite a lot this term and he can get plenty of minutes.

One gets the feeling that that’s all he needs at this moment in time.

He needs momentum and consistency, because the talent is there.
