Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan is reportedly now being chased by three other teams from Scotland.
The 24-year-old has been enjoying a fantastic loan spell with St Mirren in 2021/22.
The star has made 30 appearances so far, and scored eight goals and also laid on five assists. Those numbers helped him win the club’s Player of the Year award on Sunday night. He also claimed two other gongs.
It has undoubtedly been the most productive season of Ronan’s career so far, and it seems his contributions for the Paisley outfit have not gone unnoticed.
According to a report from The Telegraph today, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibernian are all on Ronan’s tail.
And one would imagine St Mirren would absolutely love to have him back as one of their own.
There is also interest from overseas, with German club St Pauli also keen.
Ronan has been with Wanderers since the age of 17, when he joined the club from boyhood club Rochdale.
He’s made 13 appearances for the first-team, his last coming in an EFL Cup fourth-round game against Manchester City in October 2017.
Ronan has had six loan spells so far (including St Mirren).
One wonders if this might be his final one. At the age of 24, the club will surely need to decide whether he could become an option for the first-team or be sold.
Good news for Wolves with three Scottish clubs now in hunt to sign Connor Ronan
It is good news for Wolves that three clubs from Scotland, and one from Germany, are taking an interest in Ronan.
This will potentially mean they get pitted against each other, and some decent transfer bids come in for the player.
Of course, it may be that Lage wants to take a look at him in pre-season before any exit is sanctioned.
All three of the current central midfield options – Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho – have been linked with exits from Molineux at some point in 2022.
It’s possible Lage will see if he can have a role to play, having obviously never used him before.
One gets the feeling that it would be now or never for Ronan.
