Morgan Gibbs-White set for Nottingham Forest stay

Morgan Gibbs-White could potentially stay at Nottingham Forest beyond the summer window, dealing a blow to Tottenham’s hopes. 

According to Football Insider, Morgan Gibbs-White is apparently happy at Nottingham Forest and leaning towards staying at the club. Should the 24-year-old Premier League midfielder stay put at the City ground, it would be seen as a bitter blow to Tottenham’s hopes, who were among a host of sides tracking him. 

Morgan Gibbs-White set to stay at Nottingham Forest?

Morgan Gibbs-White had another influential season at Nottingham Forest and was heading into the summer window with a chance of leaving his current surroundings. Signed from Wolves in a £45 million deal, including add-ons, the 24-year-old Premier League midfielder has been a big part of helping the club remain in the Premier League.

Strong reports had suggested Gibbs-White was ready to sign for a bigger club in the summer, as Forest were bracing for big offers. Moreover, the club was embroiled in PSR-related problems, which had tipped them to sell some of their notable stars, with the 24-year-old certainly one of their prized assets.

A host of clubs have shown interest in Gibbs-White, with many teams lacking a player of his profile and quality. Due to Forest’s PSR problems, some reports also insisted the club could sell him for £40 million, which is far less than his actual valuation. 

However, Gibbs-White is leaning towards staying put at Nottingham Forest beyond the summer window. The club also intend to fight on and keep him on board. Otherwise, they will lose a key player and might have to spend rather heavily in the market to replace him. 

Gibbs-White decision a bitter blow for Tottenham

Among all the teams interested in Gibbs-White, Tottenham were considered the favourites to land him and offer him the chance to play at a top level. Spurs have many options in the vein of the 24-year-old’s style to contemplate upon, but they might have wanted the Forest star on priority. 

The decision from Gibbs-White and the fact that Forest might have manoeuvred through their PSR-related troubles is a bitter blow for Tottenham and their hopes of signing the attacking midfielder. As things stand, the English star may not move out of Forest, but things could rapidly change in the different stages of the summer transfer window.
