    Nottingham Forest has confirmed the signing of Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolves for a club-record transfer fee. Forest has been chasing the midfielder all summer and Gibbs-White has signed his five-year deal. He will be their 16th deal this summer as Forest return to the Premier League for the first time since 1999. Gibbs-White will wear his number 10 jersey.

    Nottingham Forest has signed Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolves in a deal that could reach a club-record £42.5m. Gibbs-White has agreed to a five-year contract that will initially cost him £25m, plus £17.5m in additional costs. 

    The player plans to reunite with manager Steve Cooper, who he worked with at Swansea during his loan spell for the 2020-21 season. The 22-year-old was also part of Cooper’s squad that won the FIFA U17 World Cup in 2017.

    Last year during Gibbs-White’s loan spell at Sheffield United he turned out to be one of the standout players in last season’s championship but Blades reached the play-off semi-finals only to lose to Forest.

    Gibbs-White Regarding the Transfer

    Gibbs-White entered Wolf’s Academy at age 8 and made his senior debut at age 16. He was loaned out to Swansea and Sheffield United, however, he stated that “Wolves has been his whole life”.

    “This has been the hardest decision of my life,” says the 22-year-old. “But one I felt I had to take at this stage of my career.”

    “It hurts to leave but it’s time to take on a new challenge. I’ll always be a Wolves fan and watch out for our results on matchdays.”

    “I want to wish everyone all the best for the future and hope to see you all soon.”
