The star has made 31 appearances so far this season for Boro, and laid on eight assists.

As per the Northern Echo, Giles has actually been a ‘revelation’ this season for the Championship outfit.

He has established himself as one of the best attacking full-backs in the league.

Boro’s recruitment team are now hoping to sign Giles as one of their own, and Carrick has revealed there have already been conversations.

He said (Northern Echo): “There’s conversations that go on all the time. It’s not like we don’t talk about things and then just decide in the summer. It’s an ongoing thing.

“Obviously, right now, there’s nothing more to report on it, but Ryan has been magnificent for us. He’s obviously caused a lot of problems going forward, but he’s also improved an awful lot on his defending.

“He’s a terrific lad, and I really enjoy working with him and having him around the building because he brings a lot of energy to the group.

“Of course, we’re constantly looking at what we need to improve and nail down now or in the summer. That’s just constant work that we’re trying to carry out.”

Of course, back at Wolves, Julen Lopetegui has two fantastic young left-backs in Hugo Bueno and Rayan Ait-Nouri.

Jonny Castro Otto is also an option to play there.

Giles is thriving in the English second tier, and that is not really much of a surprise.

The 23-year-old has previously had spells at Coventry City, Rotherham United and Cardiff City, and to date now, he has clocked up over 100 appearances in the competition.

There is decent money to be made on Giles.

It might be hard for him to make it back at Molineux because of Bueno and Ait-Nouri – two players who are of a similar age to him.

So Wolves may well entertain selling him.

And there’s a good chance more clubs will be looking to sign him permanently, not just Boro.
