Darron Gibson has struggled to establish himself at Everton, and could be a smart signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves have made a solid start to their Championship season, with a win and a draw from their opening two games.

The danger in making a good start to the season is that it sometimes offers a false sense of security, and covers up the need to bring in extra quality.

New Wolves boss Walter Zenga has talked up his intentions of bringing in more singings, and if they are to push for promotion this term, it will be vital for them to make the necessary acquisitions to improve the squad as a whole.

A fantastic option for the Midlands outfit would be Everton's Darron Gibson.

The former Manchester United midfielder has failed to establish himself at Goodison Park since his move to the club in January 2012, and managed to make only two Premier League starts last season for the Blues.

A move to Wolves and the opportunity to play regular first-team football would be a huge boost to Gibson's career, and would offer him a platform to re-establish himself as a top-level performer.

The Republic of Ireland international spent a six-month loan spell at Wolves during the 2007/08 season, and made 21 league appearances, so it is a club that Gibson is already familiar with.

The 28-year-old is comfortable in possession of the football, and has such a varied range of passing. He is also renowned for his tireless work ethic, and has a penchant for a long shot.

He would make such a difference to Zenga's midfield and give them something they currently do not have.

Gibson can play the box-to-box role competently, but he would be more useful to Wolves in a deep-lying play-maker role, using his quality and experience to dictate the tempo of the game.

When Gibson came through the ranks at Man United he was very highly regarded, and had the potential to reach the very top.

So far, that potential has not been reached, but a move to the Molineux could give him the chance to prove what he is truly capable of.
