Scouting expert hopeful Morgan Gibbs-White will stay at Wolves, predicts 'big year' for him

We’re delighted to welcome Football Manager’s Wolves researcher Dave Azzopardi as our exclusive columnist. Each week the scouting expert will be giving his views on the biggest talking points on Wonderkids across the UK…

Morgan Gibbs-White is set for a big year at Wolves next season after his successful loan spell with Sheffield United last season.

The England Under-21 international spent the year in the Championship and had a stellar campaign helping the Blades reach the playoffs, before falling to defeat against eventual winners Nottingham Forest.

But after reports that the club are set to offer him a new contract to secure his future at Molineux, Football Manager researcher for Wolves and Talking Wolves founder Dave Azzopardi believes he has improved greatly and could be set for a big year in the Premier League.

“I hope he has a future with Wolves,” he told The Football Wonderkids. “Obviously he’s played.. I don’t think the system that Nuno Espirito Santo and Bruno Lage have played have suited Morgan as a player. I think he’s more of a number ten, he likes to get on the ball and break the lines, but we never play a system that suits a number ten really.

“I’m glad this season has worked out for him, he’s had a really good season at Sheffield United.

I think if Sheffield United got promoted they would have tried their best to get him on a permanent deal. I think the fact they lost in the playoffs, I really hope that he’s got a future at Wolves and he could be a big part of our squad for next season.

“He’s comfortable on the ball. I think the one thing he had to get into his head was that it didn’t have to all go through him. He didn’t have to do all the work.

I think at Sheffield United he’s learnt that he can knock the ball on to somebody else and find himself in a better position, and that way he’s got a lot more assists and got some good goals too.

“I’m hopeful that he can make the step up next season. He had a great pre-season at Wolves last summer and I was surprised we let him go, so I’m hoping for another big year from him.”

Reported interest from Crystal Palace and AC Milan [talkSPORT] has got tongues wagging, but the 22-year-old has been given the platform to make waves for the club whose academy he came through.
