Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Morgan Gibbs-White scored on his debut for Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
The Blades thrashed Peterborough United 6-2 at Bramall Lane to move up to 18th in the Championship table.
Gibbs-White was responsible for the hosts’ fourth goal, driving into the top corner via a touch from Posh ‘keeper Christy Pym following Iliman Ndiaye’s lay-off.
Wolves let Gibbs-White go on Deadline Day
Sheffield United sealed a season-long loan move for Gibbs-White on the final day of the summer transfer window (via BBC Sport).
Wolves sanctioned the move even though they failed to recruit a new central midfielder themselves. The Midlands outfit tried to sign Lille’s Renato Sanches and Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara on deadline day but were unable to reach an agreement in either case.
Gibbs-White was also loaned out last season, only to be recalled from Swansea City in January. He finished the season with 11 Premier League appearances under his belt (via WhoScored).
The official Sheffield United Twitter account posted a clip of his goal, and here’s how some Wolves fans reacted.
Wolves fans flock to Gibbs-White footage
“Well done lad, wished you was doing it at the Molineux lad, keep up the good work.”
“Right, give him back”
“Recalled in January because we fail to get our targets in again, bet your life on it”
“Honestly don’t understand why we sent him out on loan”
“Watch us recall him in January again”
“I really don’t get why we let him go but I hope he has a great loan spell. What a hit that is!”
