Connor Ronan comments on his Wolves future after making Premier League debut recently

Connor Ronan has spoken about his future, admitting he hasn’t really thought too much about January, after making his Premier League debut for Wolves.

The midfielder enjoyed a positive November, with Steve Davis handing him his first appearance in the top-flight for Wolves against Brighton.

He only came on right at the end, but it was a proud moment for Ronan, whose last appearance for the first-team came back in October 2017.

Ronan was then handed a start against Leeds United in the third round of the Carabao Cup, and impressed in the middle of the park.

It will likely have lit a fire beneath Ronan, who had a tremendous season in 2021/22 with St Mirren.

There’s a strong chance he will play in the Carabao Cup fourth round game against Gillingham, and should he shine, he might be in line for more opportunities.

But competition is strong, so he’ll have to play out of his skin in the coming weeks.

It is possible he could end up going out on loan. Especially if Lopetegui is thinking about signing a new midfielder.

Speaking about his future, Ronan said (via Express & Star): “My plan is to take each game as it comes. It would be nice to get more minutes and pick up that experience.

“You have to train well to earn your chance and earn that trust.

“I haven’t really thought too much about January.

“I’m going to try and get more minutes first and then re-assess. I’m happy to take it game by game.”

Connor Ronan is up against it, but he has the talent to impress Wolves’ new manager Julen Lopetegui

It was brilliant for Ronan to experience the Premier League for the first time last month, and then his performance against Leeds in the Carabao Cup was really good.

He’s on the fringes at Molineux, and Bruno Lage never gave him a chance after keeping him for his squad. He, really, should have gotten more minutes under the Portuguese.

Perhaps Ronan’s luck will be under Lopetegui. He has a couple of weeks now to impress in what is essentially another pre-season for Wolves.

There is then that game against Gillingham, and a couple of Premier League games before the January window opens.

It will be tough for Ronan because there are several top players in his position. But he’s a really tidy player with a creative side to his game. He certainly has the potential to impress the new boss.
