Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan says he 100% wants to stay at the club beyond the summer.
The 24-year-old has been working hard over the past few weeks to try and impress Bruno Lage in pre-season.
Ronan has gotten minutes out in Alicante and the Algarve, and has given a pretty good account of himself.
It was reported last month that Ronan had made an instant impression on some of his teammates and the coaching staff.
Supposedly some would be happy for Ronan to be a part of Wolves’ Premier League squad for 2022/23.
It remains to be seen if that will be the case.
But Ronan is very sure that’s what he wants, having been out on loan six times during his at time at the club.
He said (via Birmingham Mail): “One hundred percent. That’s the dream for every young lad growing up (to play in the Premier League). Just to be around it is a great experience but I want to stay at the football club, there’s no doubt about that.”
The star also revealed that he is set to sit down with officials to discuss his future. Nothing has been decided just yet.
He also suggested that he has previously felt frustrated about not getting opportunities upon returning from loan spells.
Connor Ronan deserves a chance for Wolves
It would be fantastic to see Ronan called into the squad by Bruno Lage.
He’s been out on loan a lot over the years, and it’s a bit of a shame that he hasn’t had many opportunities to impress previously.
Lage has given him plenty of minutes in this pre-season though, and Ronan has looked good.
At the age of 24, he could now be ready to play a part for Wolves.
If Lage is going to be using 4-3-3 as he has been doing in pre-season, then the manager will need more options for midfield.
Ronan should be kept hold of, and ideally the club will also bring in a new face.
