Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White has confirmed that he’s recovering well from a back injury.
The youngster had to withdraw from international duty with England’s Under-21s side because of the back pain and he returned to Molineux to be assessed.
The 19-year-old has now confirmed that he is receiving treatment, but that he will be available when the players return from the international break.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side host Southampton next weekend in the Premier League when domestic football returns and the teenager should be in contention.
“I hurt my back, so I’m currently at Wolves, doing rehab and a bit of treatment. I’m fixing myself so I’ll be ready to go when the boys get back from internationals, and we’ll be raring to go on the Saturday,” Gibbs-White told the club’s official website.
“The aim’s always to get yourself fit. You’ve got to work with what you’ve got, know your boundaries, know your limits. Everything’s going fine, it’s looking good.”
Gibbs-White is a squad player constantly battling for his spot in the Wolves team and it’s good news for him that he has no long-term damage with his injury to sideline him.
The attacking midfielder has shown this season he play on the wing when needed, but usually operates in a number 10 role as an advanced playmaker.
He’s played nine games across all competitions so far this campaign, but there is a tough battle for him to earn a regular spot in the XI.
The academy graduate has played just three times in the Premier League so far this campaign and it’s something he will hope improve.
GIbbs-White has though started in both Europe League group stage matches and is getting the opportunity to play alongside top-class talents like Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves.
