Sherwood backing Spurs move for Gibbs-White

One of Tottenham's summer transfer targets has been compared to Manchester City forward Jack Grealish.

Tim Sherwood, a former Spurs and Aston Villa boss, has compared Morgan Gibbs-White to Grealish.

The Nottingham Forest midfielder is being linked with a move to Spurs, a year after he joined Forest from Wolves.

“He has been outstanding," Sherwood told Premier League Productions.

“He takes the pressure off the defenders. He takes the ball. A bit like Grealish when he takes the pressure off.

“Buys some fouls and takes you up the field. But real quality - Forest have got to be commended for taking him there. £40 million seemed a lot of money, but I think by the time next season comes, and if they stay in the Premier League again and he keeps getting shone in the correct light, then I think he will be a cheap signing."
