Along with Phil Foden and Ryan Sessegnon, Wolves’ hottest prospect is one of just three 18-year-olds featuring regularly in the Premier League.
Gibbs-White’s career took off after winning the World Cup, something his manager Nuno Espirito Santo proudly pointed out shortly after he returned from helping England’s under-17s to glory out in India.
“He’s skilled and there’s no doubt we are speaking about a player who can be a very good footballer,” Nuno boasted.
“It’s about him paying attention to all the things he can learn – not only from the technical staff, but also his team-mates.
“He’s a world champion, don’t forget that.”
Part of Gibbs-White’s grounding came at Thomas Telford School, where he honed his football skills and studied tirelessly to ensure a Plan B was in place if his dream job was unattainable.
Des Lyttle – a former professional footballer for Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion – was Gibbs-White’s coach and mentor at Thomas Telford.
Despite working closely with one of England’s most prodigious talents, Lyttle insists Gibbs-White’s rapid rise couldn’t have been predicted.
