St Mirren have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan as manager Jim Goodwin makes a Deadline Day move.

The Irishman hasn’t made a senior appearance for Wolves since 2017 but is highly-rated by the English Premier League club, contracted until 2024. He now moves to the Scottish Premiership for the season to continue playing regularly, his latest club being Swiss side Grasshopper. Goodwin is braced for interest in midfielder Jamie McGrath.
