PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! While Paul Heckingbottom, his recruitment team and CEO Stephen Bettis have all played their part in what's proven to be a fruitful transfer window so far, it seems Morgan Gibbs-White has also had a big impact in their recruitment drive. The Wolves midfielder and last season's player of the year has now helped to convince two players to make the switch to Bramall Lane. On the occasions that Tommy Doyle and James McAtee have got wind of interest from Sheffield United, they have both just happened to have been on international duty with England under 21s at the time.

"I spoke to Morgan Gibbs-White and he spoke very well about this club," he explained. "He was saying about the team and staff being very nice and how they look after you. He was a big part of it. "I don't remember who we were playing but we were playing at Huddersfield and we got off the coach and he said 'the gaffer's just rang me asking about you'. "I said 'really? What's it like there?' and he said the club's amazing and they make you feel at home. Then he got into the football stuff about finding the 10s, which is too long to go into." Having starred for Man City's under 23 side last season, scoring eight goals and grabbing nine assists to help them to the Premier League 2 title, he's now taken the big step to go out on loan for the first time and try and establish himself in the senior game.

. "He had a great season," he added. "And it is benefiting him now. Of course, I would love for what happened to him to happen to me. We'll see, it's a long season ahead. "It's my first loan and I have got to get used to it quickly and hopefully I can adapt just as quick." Hearing of Gibbs-White's influence on two of his signing's so far will be music to the ears of Heckingbottom. Cutely aware that players will often speak to each other before making decisions the fact that Gibbs-White will always recommend United to anyone who asks for his opinion serves as a wonderful pat on the back for Heckingbottom, his coaching team, players and the club as a whole. For all the spiel and talk that a manager will give to a player to convince him to come, there is no better endorsement than when a player sells the club for you. And that's exactly what Heckingbottom will like when hearing of Gibbs-White's influence.
