Wolves youngster praised by Nuno

6th December 2018, 13:07 by Bobbie Jackson

Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White has been tipped to enjoy a big future in the game by boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 18-year-old, who is a graduate of Wolves’ academy, made his first Premier League start for the club on Wednesday as they claimed a shock 2-1 victory at home to Chelsea.

Gibbs-White has received positive reviews during his previous eight substitute appearances in the league and an assist against Blues has further enhanced his reputation.

The victory lifted Wolves up to 12th ahead of Sunday's trip to Newcastle and Nuno praised the impact of Gibbs-White.

"He is getting in the game and bringing energy, staying focused and humble," Nuno said.

"He has a lot to improve and a lot to give to us and us to him. Together we are going to try to build something.

"He is one of the best generations of English players for a long time."
