Nottingham Forest: Unlikely source claims deal is close for Morgan Gibbs-White

Nottingham Forest: Unlikely source claims deal is close for Morgan Gibbs-White -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are close to ‘completing a move’ for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White this summer, according to journalist Ali Martin.

The Lowdown: Gibbs-White a summer target

The 22-year-old shone during a loan spell at Sheffield United last season, having been deemed surplus to requirements by Wolves manager Bruno Lage.

Forest have been linked with a move for Gibbs-White this summer, with the midfielder ironically missing a key penalty in the Championship playoff semi-final shootout against the Reds back in May.

It now looks as though the Wolves man could be off to the City Ground, following a key update from an unusual source.

The Latest: Move reportedly close

Taking to Twitter, Martin, a cricket correspondent for The Guardian, claimed that Gibbs-White is on the verge of heading to Forest imminently:

“For those who like their football rumours from a cricket correspondent, hearing Forest are v close to completing a deal for Morgan Gibbs-White.”

The reporter followed up by asserting it’s ‘just what I heard’, although Express and Star’s Liam Keen has claimed the rumours are wide of the mark, so it will be interesting to watch the developments on this one over the coming days.

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Very exciting, if true

Gibbs-White is a player of immense potential, having been hailed as an ‘instrumental’ performer by Billy Sharp and a talent with the ‘world at his feet‘ by David McGoldrick, so this is a very exciting update from a Forest perspective.

Are you hoping that Forest sign Tavernier?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The youngster has great technical ability, as 12 goals and ten assists in the Championship last season prove, and he could add an injection of end product to Steve Cooper’s midfield, not to mention increasing squad depth.

At 22, Gibbs-White can grow into a top-class footballer in the right team and under the right manager – he and Forest could be a match made in heaven, getting the best out of his creative brilliance.
