Wolves loanee Connor Ronan says he will aim to ‘dictate’ play and score goals from midfield for St Mirren after signing a season-long loan with the Scottish Premiership club.

The 23-year-old is contracted to Wolves until 2024 but has not played for the senior side at Molineux since 2017. Still highly-regarded, they are keen for him to play first-team football and St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has moved to get him to Paisley.

Ronan was St Mirren’s only Deadline Day signing in a 24 hours during which they lost midfielder Cammy MacPherson to St Johnstone while retaining star player Jamie McGrath. The Wolves loanee is keen to get started at St Mirren and aims to play with the ball at his feet.

He said: “I can’t wait to get going.  The manager wanted me to come in and play as I like to play as a creative midfielder. It was a really positive chat and from that point on it was just a case of getting everything sorted.

 

“I’m hard-working first and foremost and I think that’s got to be a given for any player. I like to get on the ball and try to dictate things and create and score as many goals as possible.”
