Morgan Anthony Gibbs-White (born 27 January 2000) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers. He has represented England at under-16 through under-19 level.[3]

Career[edit]

Wolverhampton Wanderers[edit]

Gibbs-White joined Wolverhampton Wanderers aged 8 and has played for the club's academy at all age groups.[4] He made his first team debut, aged 16, as a substitute in 2–0 win over Premier League side Stoke City in the FA Cup 3rd round on 7 January 2017.[5] He made his first league appearance on 14 February 2017 in a 1–0 defeat against Wigan Athletic.[6]

In January 2018, it was announced that Gibbs-White had signed a contract to keep him at the club until summer 2022.[7]

He made his first Premier League appearance in the opening home match against Everton as a late substitute.[8] He also came on as a substitute in the home match against Tottenham Hotspur; despite the team losing 3–2, his performance received particular praise.[9]

Gibbs-White got his first start in the Premier League in the home game against Chelsea, in which he provided the assist for Wolves' first goal in a 2–1 win.[10]

International career[edit]

Gibbs-White was part of the England team that won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup. He scored twice in the tournament, against the United States in a 4–1 win in the quarter-finals, and once in the final, which England won 5–2 against Spain.[11] In December 2017, Rhian Brewster revealed in an interview with The Guardian that Gibbs-White was racially abused by a Spanish player during the final with the FA reporting the incident to FIFA.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Gibbs-White was born and grew up in Stafford. He attended Sir Graham Balfour School and later Thomas Telford School. He grew up supporting Manchester United.
