This article forms part of our What Does The Future Hold series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at what potentially lies ahead for a player, manager or club.
Wolves winger Morgan Gibbs-White is a youngster with a lot of talent and potential.
He came in for some huge praise last season, with former Premier League striker Peter Crouch being one man who could not hold in his excitement after watching the 20-year-old play.
“I have been talking him up to anyone who will listen to me since Stoke played Wolves in a pre-season friendly and I am not going to stop,” Crouch wrote in his Daily Mail column. “This young boy plays and passes with the composure of a veteran. He’s going places fast.”
This campaign, however, Gibbs-White has not been able to make a similar impression. He has made just one Premier League start and does not look likely to break into Nuno Espirito Santo’s first XI anytime soon.
On the right, Adama Traore has been outstanding, grabbing himself four goals and seven assists. With an average of 5.2, the Spaniard is also completing the most dribbles per game in the Premier League (via WhoScored).
Meanwhile, on the opposite flank, Diogo Jota has really come alive over the last couple of months. He found the back of the net on three occasions in recent games against Tottenham and Norwich City to take his goal tally in the league to six, while he is also averaging 2.2 dribbles per game — the second-highest average in Wolves’ squad.
Taking all of that into consideration, right now, there is simply no room for Gibbs-White in the starting XI.
Furthermore, the England U21 international may need to spend some time away from Molineux, so perhaps a loan move in the summer is the best solution for all parties and the likely outcome once all options are discussed.
