The present is looking pretty positive at Wolves but the future appears rather bright too. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are top of the Championship and on track for a long-awaited return to the Premier League while boasting some of the most gifted players to have played in the second tier in many a year.

Though beyond the first-team, Wolves’ reserves also provide plenty of reason for optimism. Young striker Donovan Wilson is earning rave reviews while fellow forward Benny Ashley-Seal could prove to be a real coup from Norwich – especially as Wolves beat Premier League clubs to the teenager’s signature.

Morgan Gibbs-White, however, is perhaps the best of the bunch. The prodigious midfielder is a regular for Wolves’ Under-23s side at the age of just 17 – and he played an important role as England’s Under-17s lifted the World Cup via a thrilling 5-2 comeback win against Spain.

Gibbs-White is cultivating quite the reputation. The downside, however, is that he is now attracting plenty of interest with Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham tracking his progress closely, according to The Mail.

Needless to say, Wolves fans are desperate for one of their most exciting youngsters in years to nail his colours to the Molineux mast.

Fortunately, they may get their wish. The Express and Star reports that Gibbs-White, who made seven Championship appearances last season, is in discussions over a new contract and may commit his future to the club when he turns 18 in January.
