Transfer deadline day: Connor Ronan comments as he completes loan move to St Mirren

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Conor Ronan has expressed his excitement for the season ahead after joining St Mirren on a season-long loan.

The Scottish Premiership club have just provided official confirmation of the move.

Ronan will be hoping to make a big impression, in a physically tough league.

Last term Ronan went to Swiss side Grasshoppers, where he made 32 appearances in total.

His contributions help the club gain promotion to the Swiss Super League.

Speaking about his move to St Mirren, Ronan 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.”

There is potential for Ronan to make his debut for the Buddies against Dundee United following the international break.

Ronan is the third Wolves youngster to head up to Scotland this summer, after Austin Samuels joined Aberdeen and Luke Matheson went to Hamilton Academical.

A good move for Ronan

Hopefully Ronan will get regular minutes under Jim Goodwin.

The Scottish Premiership will be good for him and potentially toughen him up.

Ronan is 23 and so, one gets the feeling this might be he last chance to stake a claim to become involved with the first-team back at Molineux.

Failing that, a good showing can help make the club a bit of money in the transfer market.
