Wolves: Madeley reacts to Morgan Gibbs-White’s exit

Wolves: Madeley reacts to Morgan Gibbs-White’s exit -Wolves News

Wolves‘ decision to let Morgan Gibbs-White join Nottingham Forest is a ‘no-brainer’ because of the transfer fee, according to journalist Steve Madeley.

The Lowdown: Gibbs-White moving on

The 22-year-old is a great young talent who has started the season well for Wanderers, playing all 180 minutes of their opening two Premier League games in 2021/22.

It looks as though Gibbs-White’s days at Molineux are about to come to an abrupt end, however, with Forest on the verge of acquiring his signature.

A huge deal worth £44.5million is nearly done, according to the reliable David Ornstein, as the midfielder makes the relatively short move to Nottingham.

The Latest: Madeley discusses ‘no-brainer’

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Madeley claimed that the transfer is one that Wolves simply couldn’t say no to, considering the price tag involved:

“Realise it’s always disappointing not to see one of your own get established in the first team but given all the circumstances this feels like a no-brainer for Wolves. While he has the potential to be worth more, he would probably never have been worth more to Wolves.”

The Verdict: Too good to turn down?

Gibbs-White is someone who has every chance of enjoying a bright future in the game – he has been called ‘outstanding’ by Barnsley manager Poya Asbaghi – with his valuation highlighting how highly Forest think of him.

While it would have been a positive to keep hold of him for many years to come, Madeley is right in his assessment, with £44.5million simply too much to ignore for a player who still only has 48 Premier League appearances to his name.

The money could be used wisely on new signings for Wolves between now and the end of the transfer window, as well as covering the fee paid for new signing Matheus Nunes.
