Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White can become a regular for Wanderers after a superb season out on loan, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Lowdown: Gibbs-Whites stars for Blades
The 22-year-old sealed a temporary move to Sheffield United last summer, in order to continue his development with regular playing time.
Gibbs-White’s loan move has been an extremely fruitful one, with the midfielder scoring ten goals and also adding eight assists, helping the Blades get into the Championship playoff picture.
The Englishman will return to Wolves at the end of the season, as he looks to kick on at Molineux.
The Latest: Youngster tipped to shine
Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke said next season is the time for Gibbs-White to become a key figure for Wanderers:
“I think it’s a big opportunity for Morgan Gibbs-White this summer to go back to Wolves and show that he is capable of becoming a regular in that team.
“He’s gone to the Championship, and I think he’s probably been one of the best players in the league, for me, this season. So, I think Gibbs-White, ideally, would love to go back to Wolves and show that he can be part of Bruno Lage’s team going forward.”
The Verdict: Ready to step up
Gibbs-White is an outstanding young talent and it does feel as though his career is taking a natural trajectory, with its next chapter seeing him make the grade at Wolves.
At 22, he isn’t particularly a young talent anymore and it is time for him to show that he can excel in the Premier League on a regular basis, being a genuinely reliable squad member under Bruno Lage rather than just a future star.
With Ruben Neves potentially moving on, supporters could be looking for a new midfield hero to emerge and there is no reason why Gibbs-White can’t be that man, having already made 86 appearances for the club to date.
