Wolves have shown their faith in Connor Ronan by handing him a new four-year contract. 

The English-born Republic of Ireland U21 midfielder will remain with the Premier League club until at least the summer of 2024.

Signed by Wolves when he was 16, Ronan has 14 senior appearances to his name.

He's been well-travelled over the past three seasons, having spells at Portsmouth, Walsall, Slovakian outfit FC DAC and - most recently - Blackpool.

Ronan is to spend this season on loan with Swiss Super League side Grasshoppers.

"We recognise that Connor keeps improving, but we also recognise that he’s a young player with a lot more development still to come, which is reflected in this new contract," said the head of Wolves' Academy, Scott Sellars.

"What we love about Connor is his attitude to try new experiences. A lot of players from England don’t want to venture outside their doorsteps, but Connor’s got a very forward-thinking attitude to go and try new things.

“He went to Slovakia and thrived, improving himself not only as a player, but also in his personal development, experiencing and relishing the different cultures.

“He’s also done very well at international level with the Republic of Ireland under-21s and Stephen Kenny, who was the under-21s coach and is now the head coach, has always rated Connor very highly.

"We hope he will soon progress to the full Ireland squad, because we believe he has the ability and potential to do that.

“Connor’s next challenge is to do well with this new opportunity at Grasshoppers, and we hope it is another step in helping him to progress even further in his career."
