Paul Brown has claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers academy graduate Morgan Gibbs-White is set to play a ‘big role’ in the coming season.
The 22-year-old impressed whilst out on loan at Sheffield United last season, making 35 Championship appearances, and helping the Blades to the play-offs, where they were left disappointed, in the end. The point stands, however, that Gibbs-White enjoyed a consistent spell, and is now, therefore, in Bruno Lage’s plans.
Speaking about the situation, Paul Brown told GiveMeSport: “Gibbs-White seems to be doing really well for Wolves in pre-season.
“From what we hear, the noises coming from the club are that he’s going to have quite a big role to play for them this season.”
We certainly hope that Brown is right. Gibbs-White has been forced to wait for his opportunity at his boyhood club. Come August, though, the midfielder could finally get his chance to shine on the big stage.
It would certainly make sense for Lage to use Gibbs-White, too. Given Wolves’ lack of summer business, they may have no choice but to turn to academy graduates such as the former Sheffield United loanee.
TIF Thoughts on Brown’s comments…
Wolves are an interesting side. Following their lack of business so far this summer, it’s hard to really say where they’ll be next season. Whilst they haven’t got the squad depth to necessarily finish inside the European places, they’re a far cry from a side set for a relegation battle.
From Lage’s point of view, he will just hope that the players he does have at his disposal hit the ground running in the coming campaign to avoid any disastrous and incredibly costly mishaps from taking place.
With the likes of Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto still around, however, we’re sure that Wolves will steer clear of danger in the next campaign.
