Wolves have called Morgan Gibbs-White back from his loan with Swansea.
The midfielder is now fighting for a place in Nuno Espirito Santo’s injured squad and is eligible for the FA Cup visit on Friday at Crystal Palace.

“The youngster impressed with the championship team in the first half of the season and is now rejoining Nuno Espirito Santo’s first team at Compton Park,” said a statement from Wolves.
“The Wolves Academy graduate scored once in their unbeaten first four games for the Swans and helped another before an injury interrupted his time in Wales.
