Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan is a Deadline Day target for Scottish Premiership club St Mirren (DR).
The 23-year-old is highly-rated by Wolves but he has not been able to gain regular minutes at the English Premier League side. Ronan has spent the last five years out on loan from Wolves, including spells with Portsmouth, Walsall, Blackpool and Slovakian side FC DAC 1904. His next destination could be Jim Goodwin’s St Mirren.
Last season’s loan away from Wolves at Swiss giants Grasshopper Zurich was promising, playing a key role in their promotion from the Swiss Challenge League back to the top-flight. Ronan hasn’t played senior football for Wolves since 2017 but recently extended his contract at Molineux until 2024.
A statement on the deal from Wolves’ head of academy Scott Sellars read: “We recognise that Connor keeps improving, but we also recognise that he’s a young player with a lot more development still to come, which is reflected in this new contract.
“He went to Slovakia and thrived, improving himself not only as a player, but also in his personal development, experiencing and relishing the different cultures. He’s also done very well at international level with the Republic of Ireland U21s and Stephen Kenny, who was the U21s coach and is now the head coach, has always rated Connor.”
