Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Ryan Giles has joined Cardiff City on loan.

The Express & Star are reporting the talented 21-year-old is linking up with ex-Molineux boss Mick McCarthy for the 2021/22 season.

Giles spent last season on loan Coventry City, and then Rotherham United.

It was a productive campaign for him, as he made 44 appearances in total across the two clubs.

Speaking about his move, Giles told Cardiff’s official website: “It was a no-brainer when I knew the interest was there. There are some very good players here and I think the competition will be healthy. Hopefully it will bring the best out of me.

“I want to come here, get as many games as I can and help the team as much as possible.”

Giles will be hoping to make a big impression with the Welsh club.

He is a very talented young player, with technical director Scott Sellars saying in an interview with The Athletic today that Giles is one of the best young crossers of the ball in the country.

That will likely be music to 6ft 5in striker Kieffer Moore’s ears.

A good move for Giles

Cardiff will be a good move for young Giles.

Obviously he got to experience the Championship last season, but now he’ll be playing in a better side looking to push for promotion.

There’s good potential for him to rack up some assists given the aerial threat of Moore for the Bluebirds.

Should he have another good season, perhaps he could end up making Wolves some good money or even get a first-team chance.
