Wolves’ triple transfer link emerges as loan star’s future must be decided
Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Connor Ronan has been attracting strong transfer interest since going on loan this season, with another club showing interest in the player.
The 24-year-old has been in excellent form since joining Scottish side St. Mirren on loan at the start of the season. He scored eight goals in all competitions in 30 appearances while providing assists at key moments.
The Irishman even picked up three accolades at the club’s recent year-end awards ceremony, underlining the impact he has had with the Buddies this season. Unsurprisingly, the club would like to keep him beyond this season, but that won’t happen.

Other Scottish clubs are now interested in signing him in the summer transfer window, namely Hearts and Aberdeen . The latter’s manager, Jim Goodwin, is keen on the move given he signed Ronan on loan from St. Mirren last year.
St. Pauli have also been linked to the fire-haired supremo. With Germany’s second-tier side vying for promotion, the possibility of playing in the Bundesliga may be attractive for a player who has ambitions to play international football.
Now these clubs will have to fight with a newcomer in the race for his signature, as Hibernian have “monitored” the player closely, according to The Telegraph.
There is, of course, the possibility that Wolves decide to give Ronan a chance in the first team next season given his impressive performances for St. Mirren. But with the player attracting so much interest he might be tempted to sell in order to increase the transfer budget.
Ronan has previously said his main goal is to break into the Wolves first team.
