Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has helped the team's recent resurgence and he impressed again in the win over Bournemouth.

Pundit Jamie Redknapp says he is a big fan of the teenager and believes he helps star man Ruben Neves out.

 

Speaking to The Mail, Redknapp raved: "I love watching this kid play.

"Saturday’s win over Bournemouth was just his second Premier League start but he plays with such confidence, always looking to drive with the ball and go past players.

"He gives Nuno Espirito Santo’s midfield a lovely balance. Ruben Neves is an excellent technician but he needs the pace and energy of a player like Gibbs-White around him."

Redknapp went onto tip Gibbs-White to get into England's senior squad, which is beginning to look like an inevitability if he keeps up this current form.

He has played in 11 Premier League games already, nine of which have come as a substitute.

He started at the weekend against Bournemouth, as he did in the recent victory over Chelsea in which he provided an assist.

The 18-year-old is being managed carefully by Nuno Santo, but it is going to be difficult to keep holding him back, especially if as Redknapp suggests, he helps Neves lift his game.
