2021/22 is an important season for Morgan Gibbs-White at Wolves.
The midfielder is now back in the picture at Molineux, after returning to the club earlier this year.
Gibbs-White had been due to spend the whole of the 2020/21 season on loan at Swansea City.
But a fractured foot ruled him out for three months. Wolves then made the call to recall him in January.
Gibbs-White initially struggled for opportunities upon returning, as former boss Nuno Espirito Santo sought to steer the team away from the relegation zone.
At the end of April though, Gibbs-White started to get more minutes.
In May, he started games against Brighton, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton, and impressed each time.
It was a pretty underwhelming finish to the season from the team as a collective, but Gibbs-White was arguably a standout performer.
He showed enough to warrant a place in Bruno Lage’s squad for the coming season, rather than be loaned out again.
He will need to make his mark early, and improve his goals and assist numbers, which currently stand at just two and one in 83 first-team appearances.
Wolves have been releasing pictures and videos of the first pre-season training of the summer.
Yesterday a clip was uploaded of Gibbs-White looking particularly sharp, which is a great sign.
Fans have been reacting to the clip, and some are hopeful now can be his moment:

I hope he has a great year. Loads of proper chances, in his position, no injuries. He showed last season that he can be good enough https://t.co/qUqiGE9Sq6
