Nottingham Forest make club record approach for Morgan Gibbs-White

Nottingham Forest have made an approach for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, 90min understands, furthering the club’s ongoing summer recruitment drive.

Gibbs-White spent last season on loan with Sheffield United and impressed in the Championship, helping the Blades into the playoffs where they were knocked out in the semi-final by Forest.

The 22-year-old scored 11 times from midfield in 35 Championship appearances during 2021/22 but has previously also played 46 Premier League games for Wolves.

Forest are not the only club interested in Gibbs-White, who was formerly an Under-17 World Cup winner with England alongside the likes of Phil Foden, Jadon Sancho and Emile Smith Rowe under the guidance of current Forest boss Steve Cooper.

But Cooper is a strong admirer of the player and Forest are hopeful of completing a deal that would see him move to the City Ground for a transfer fee set to exceed £20m.
