Wolves midfielder Ryan Giles is spending the season out on loan at Cardiff City.

The Athletic have offered a report on his progress at a club they say were handpicked.

Cardiff were apparently chosen as Mick McCarthy sets them up with width, supplying a target man and Giles’ superb crossing ability fits in with that perfectly.

Giles got five assists in his first six games in Wales, making an absolutely flying start.

Cardiff have lost six straight games and now sit 20th in the Championship, and the team performances have impacted Giles’ form.

But the report claims that Wolves remain delighted with Giles’ progress and he has been working closely with McCarthy’s former Molineux assistant – who briefly turned manager – Terry Connor.


Giles has been improving his work off the ball and has apparently been Cardiff’s best attacking player this season.

A first goal for the club is his next target, but Wolves are satisfied with how it is all going so far.

Bruno Lage’s arrival must hearten all Wolves’ young talents that there is a pathway to the first team.

He has a background in youth coaching and is more of a risk taker than Nuno Espirito Santo.

That is an issue for next season, but Giles is impressing his parent club this time around, despite a challenging period for McCarthy, Connor and co.
