Wolverhampton Wanderers Return to Compton for Pre-Season


Keith Treacy makes Connor Ronan loan prediction

Connor Ronan will be loaned out by Wolves once again for the coming season.

That is the view of Ronan’s fellow countryman Keith Treacy, who was speaking on the RTE Soccer Podcast about transfer news relating to Irish players.

Ronan is currently out in Alicante with the Wolves squad and seeking to make an impression on Bruno Lage.

It was suggested last week that Ronan had indeed already made an impact.

Supposedly, he really impressed both coaching staff and some of the first-teamers, who would apparently be open to him being a part of the squad this season.

Wolves now have four games coming up in Alicante against Deportivo Alaves, Levante, Besiktas and Villarreal B.

Ronan should get plenty of minutes to stake a claim to be a part of Lage’s first-team squad.

In the eyes of Treacy though, the club are likely to send him out on loan again for next season.

He said: “I know he’s played a couple of games in the build-up to this season but I think he’ll go back out on loan.

“There’s so much pedigree in that Wolves side and they build their success on not conceding a lot of goals so when they get chances, they really need to hit the back of the net and I don’t think he’s quite trusted just yet in that in Bruno Lage’s eyes.

“So I think another season out on loan, but it’s not the be all and end all not to get into a Wolves team. They are a very talented bunch and a tight squad as well.”

Ronan, who spent last season on loan with St Mirren, reportedly has interest from the likes of Aberdeen and Hearts.

Any loan move for him this summer would be his seventh since joining Wolves at the age of 16.

Wolves will soon come to Connor Ronan decision, as Keith Treacy makes loan prediction

Ronan has apparently made a bright start to Wolves’ training camp in Alicante.

It will now be on him to shine in these upcoming friendlies if he is to fully prove himself to Lage.

Hopefully he does pass his audition and gets to become a part of the first-team in 2022/23.

He’s had several spells away from Molineux since coming to the club as a youngster, and it would be a nice story if he was to become a member of the first-team again at the age of 24.

Should he ultimately fail to convince Lage, then the club have surely got to try and sell. Another loan move wouldn’t really benefit the club.
