Wolves boss Lage on selling Gibbs-White to Nottingham Forest: He was unhappy

Wolves boss Bruno Lage has explained selling Morgan Gibbs-White to Nottingham Forest.

The move was confirmed today.

Lage said, "I don't want to see anyone unhappy and if they are unhappy we have to talk.

"After today we have 10 days to fix anything. If someone goes, I don't change anything, it was a pleasure to work with him.

"I believe he will go to Nottingham, the same coach as Swansea and national team (Steve Cooper) and in one or two years he can make a big impact in the Premier League, one of the best young players in the Premier League."

On Wolves' record signing Matheus Nunes, he added: "He can be very important for us, you know what he did in the last two years in Sporting.

"He can be an important player for us, that is the most important thing. Then it is a different challenge. His challenge was to come and compete in the Premier League.

"He is one midfielder that is box-to-box, he can drop near the centre-backs to build up and when we have the ball and have space and drive the ball and in the final third he does the movements I like as a winger and striker to get inside the box."
