Wolves transfer news: Connor Ronan attracting interest from Hearts and Aberdeen

Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan is reportedly attracting attention from Scottish clubs Aberdeen and Hearts.

According to the Daily Record, the 24-year-old is starting to become hot property after a terrific season so far.

Ronan is a regular on loan at St Mirren, and has scored eight goals and laid on four assists.

He has stood out often for the Buddies, not least for his remarkable long-range shooting ability.

Ronan has hit stunning efforts against the likes of Rangers, Aberdeen and Hibernian.

After his goal and performance against Rangers back in October, Steven Gerrard praised Ronan and said he had ‘played well throughout’.

And he grabbed another truly special goal against Hearts at the weekend.

Ronan marking himself out as being a goalscoring midfielder has inevitably led to interest from other clubs.

Supposedly, two clubs that have fallen victim to him personally this season – Hearts and Aberdeen – are keen.

Aberdeen’s interest is perhaps unsurprising. They are now managed by Jim Goodwin, who was at the helm at St. Mirren when Ronan joined on loan.

It remains to be seen if Wolves will sanction any permanent transfer this summer.

The Daily Record say it would take an offer in excess of £500,000 for Wanderers to sell.

Ronan spoke about his future recently, and refused to rule out leaving Wolves. He insisted that his spell in Paisley has been the best of his career to date.

The player will sit down with officials back at Molineux in the summer and a decision will be taken.

It could be that Bruno Lage at least fancies a look at him in pre-season training.

Connor Ronan could finally depart Wolves permanently this summer, as Hearts and Aberdeen show interest

With at least two clubs reportedly in for Ronan, it could be that the star finally leaves Molineux permanently this summer.

While Lage may wish to cast his eye over him in pre-season, one would think it will be tricky for Ronan to earn a first-team place.

Lage is a big fan of Morgan Gibbs-White, and there’s also Luke Cundle who is now on the first-team fringes.

Bruno Jordao may also be an option, and then of course, the club could move to spend money in the transfer market.

If Ronan is to be sold, hopefully Wanderers officials can negotiate a solid fee.
