Everton have £20m Morgan Gibbs-White transfer bid REJECTED as Wolves star stalls on new contract

Date:

WOLVES have rejected Everton’s £20million bid for Morgan Gibbs-White, according to reports.

The attacking midfielder, 22, has two years remaining on his current deal at Molineux, but Wolves are now said to be keen to tie him down with a long-term contract.

However, ongoing talks have now stalled so club chiefs may have to consider a sale while they can still demand a sizeable fee.

Various Premier League clubs have expressed an interest in signing the England u21 international including Crystal Palace, Southampton and Nottingham Forest.

Everton have also emerged as a potential suitor, but, according to The Telegraph, they have already had a £20m bid dismissed.

Claims have suggested that Wolves will only consider offers of at least £30m for Gibbs-White, who signed his first professional deal with the club in 2017.

It is currently unclear whether or not Everton will submit another offer for the midfielder, but they have previously considered him a priority target.

Gibbs-White has made 86 appearances for Wolves during his senior career, but he spent the majority of the last two seasons on loan.

He spent the first half of the 2020-21 season with Swansea City before being recalled by his parent club.

Sheffield United then signed him on a season-long loan last year and he went on to make 37 appearances across all competitions.

During that time he scored 12 goals and assisted 10, making him one of the club’s most influential players.

He recently returned to Wolves to take part in pre-season and scored the opening goal in the club’s 3-0 friendly win over Burnley at the weekend.
