Exclusive: Wolves set to terminate Gibbs-White deal
Wolves have decided to terminate Morgan Gibbs-White’s Swansea loan, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Premier League club have opted to take advantage of the recall option in the 20-year-old’s season-long deal.
A Wolves source has told Football Insider that Swansea have been informed that Gibbs-White is wanted back at his parent club.
The midfielder signed for Swansea on a season-long loan agreement in August, shortly after he put pen to paper on a new three-year contract at Molineux.
The move to the Liberty Stadium was seen as the next logical step in the youngsters development, having previously played under Swans boss Steve Cooper with England’s Under-17s.
However, he has been limited to just five Championship appearances, four of which were starts, after he fractured his foot in early October.
