Steve Cooper has heaped praise on Nottingham Forest star Morgan Gibbs-White after his arrival from Wolves in the summer. The forward has six goal contributions since he checked in at Forest and is starting to justify his £25 million transfer fee.

Forest could end up paying a lot more for Gibbs-White. The Reds performer was added back in August and the club included several clauses in the deal to take him from Molineux.

The 22-year-old was in fine form as Forest defeated Leicester 2-0 at the City Ground on Saturday. He set both goals up for Brennan Johnson as the Reds claimed bragging rights.

Cooper has worked with Gibbs-White previously. He was part of the England under-17 team that won the World Cup and he also had him on loan at Swansea.

He’s been delighted since he came to the club and it would appear that Cooper is keen to be working with the youngster once again.

Cooper told Nottinghamshire Live: “Morgan has been brilliant. I thought he was the best player on the pitch on Saturday and he’s a proper player.”

Gibbs-White ended a long association with Wolves to sign for Forest. It was quickly identified after promotion that Cooper wanted the talent as his number-one summer target and Evangelos Marinakis duly obliged.

Cooper heaped praise on Gibbs-White and there is more to come

What a player Gibbs-White is looking like already. He’s getting better with every game and is very much considered Forest’s brightest attacking outlet.

He never gives the opposition a moment of peace and is constantly probing to try and find that extra bit of space in the final third.

Forest will be glad they don’t have to play against Gibbs-White anymore. He tormented the team on several occasions last season and now he’s doing the same to other clubs.

There is more to come from Gibbs-White and that is a seriously exciting concept for Forest fans to look forward to.
