WOLVERHAMPTON Wanderers have reportedly turned down a £25 million offer from fellow Premier League club Everton for their midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White this summer.
Quoted from Sky Sports, Tuesday (12/7), Wolves rejected Everton’s offer because they considered the England Under-21 international to become a big player under coach Bruno Lage this season.
Last season, Gibbs-White was loaned to Sheffield United and now he has returned to join Wolves for pre-season and also scored in the 3-0 win over Burnley last weekend.

In addition to Gibbs-White, Everton are also trying to land Harry Winks from Tottenham Hotspur, but until now there has been no recent news regarding the transfer of the English player.
The rejection of Everton’s offer for Gibbs White, so far the Toffees have only been able to land one player in the transfer market this time, namely James Tarkowski from Burnley on a four-year contract. In addition, they lost Richarlison, who was sold to Tottenham Hotspur.
They could also be in danger of losing young midfielder Anthony Gordon, who is currently the target of one of the rich Premier League clubs, Newcastle United.
Gibbs-White is a product of the Wolves academy and was promoted to the first team in January 2017. The 22-year-old has made 86 appearances for Wolves since then, but has made just 20 Premier League appearances in the last three seasons.
Last season, Gibbs-White was often positioned in a more attacking role at Sheffield United and netted 12 goals in 37 appearances in the Championship.
He also helped the Blades advance to the semi-finals playoffs, but had to admit the advantage of Nottingham Forest. (Ant/OL-1)
