According to the journalist, John Percy of The Telegraph, Morgan Gibbs-White chose to move to Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest from Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers during the summer transfer window rather than join Frank Lampard’s Everton. Gibbs-White is currently playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers under Lage.
On Twitter, the well-known and well-respected journalist said that Everton matched the transfer cost of £25 million that Nottingham Forest is paying to Wolves for Gibbs-White. The talks about the transfer fee were believed to have taken place last night.
What’s the matter?
However, the 22-year-old offensive midfielder has opted to move to the City Ground so that he may play under Forest boss Steve Cooper. He has expressed this desire in the past.
This morning, Forest announced that they had successfully finalized the acquisition of Gibbs-White from Wolves.
According to a report by BBC Sport, the Reds would pay Wolves an initial transfer fee of 25 million pounds to get the England Under-21 international playmaker.
The acquisition of Morgan Gibbs-White by Nottingham Forest is, in our opinion, a smart move that will help the Reds improve their play in offensive midfield.

The 22-year-old showed promise when playing for Sheffield United in the Championship on loan during the previous campaign, and he could be able to carry that form over to the Premier League.
In addition, if Forest is demoted at the conclusion of the season, they will know that they have a player on their team who has already shown success at a Championship club and who will be able to lead them back to the Premier League.
While playing for the Blades in the Championship last year, Gibbs-White started all 35 games and contributed 12 goals and 10 assists. Everyone will be excited for this move to happen.
