St Mirren will be a ‘great showcase’ for Connor Ronan after following his Wolves teammates to the SPFL, according to the English Premier League club.

Wolves have sent striker Austin Samuels to Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen while right-back Luke Matheson is in the Championship with Hamilton. Ronan is the latest Wolves talent to head north, joining Saints on-loan for the 2021/22 season. Molineux strategic player marketing manager Matt Jackson believes the move is great for Ronan.

The Wolves man said said: “Connor has been excellent with the places he’s chosen to go and play football during the last few seasons, and it’s certainly expanded the experiences he has had by playing in Europe already.

“He’s coming back from injury, which has meant his development has stalled slightly as he’s missed the off-season and the first part of this season, but St Mirren have been excellent in the way they’ve conducted themselves. It’s a great showcase, which follows the other lads who have gone up to Scotland as well.

“We want him to play as much football as he possibly can up there, and St Mirren have outlined exactly how they’re going to play and it’s a great credit to Connor that he wants to continue getting as many first-team experiences as he can get.”
