Wolves may need to make regular game time assurances to Morgan Gibbs-White to keep him this summer

Morgan Gibbs-White’s 2021/22 season is now over, with the midfielder having played his final game for Sheffield United last night.

The star sadly missed the decisive penalty in the play-off semi-final shootout against Nottingham Forest, meaning the Blades will not be playing Premier League football next season.

It is a huge shame it had to end in that fashion for Gibbs-White.

The star has enjoyed a tremendous campaign at Bramall Lane. And he was recently named their Player of the Season.

Gibbs-White was the one who pushed for the move last year. Bruno Lage didn’t want to lose him.

But the decision has been vindicated, and the move has done the player the world of good.

And now, it is going to be fascinating to see what happens with him this summer.

The 22-year-old is potentially going to have quite a bit of interest in him following his brilliant campaign with the Blades.

They would no doubt love to have him back. However, Gibbs-White has arguably shown he now is ready to play in the Premier League again.

The Blades failing to secure promotion surely rules out a move back there.

But other clubs could come in, and it will be interesting to see what Wolves do.

Gibbs-White just made 40 appearances in 2021/22. And 35 of those were starts.

He will not want to go back to sitting on the bench, and so it could be that Wolves will have to give him assurances if they are to keep hold of him this summer.

Regular game time for Gibbs-White, or else he could seek Wolves exit

Gibbs-White has seriously thrived over the last nine months.

He is now a much better player than when he departed Molineux to start his loan spell at Sheffield United.

The player has spoken previously about playing regularly, and he likely won’t take kindly too becoming a bit-part player after the season he’s just had.

If Wolves don’t give him assurances about regular game time, then other clubs definitely will.

And that could lead to the player requesting to leave.
