Wolves youngster Ryan Giles can become a key figure at Molineux after his loan spell at Cardiff City ends, according to journalist Luke Hatfield.
The Lowdown: Giles out on loan
The 21-year-old joined the Bluebirds on the temporary basis back in the summer, in order to enjoy some invaluable playing time in the Championship.
The young midfielder will return to Wolves at the end of the season, at which point Bruno Lage could make him a key part of his plans.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Hatfield tips youngster to shine
Someone who expects that to be the case is Hatfield, who told Give Me Sport that he sees a bright future for him at Wanderers:
“I’m sure they’ll have one eye on him. He fits in really well with the formation they play and he is a really exciting young player.”
The Verdict: One for the future
It is always exciting to see young homegrown players given an opportunity, so the hope is that Giles can force his way into Lage’s plans.
To have registered nine assists in such short time this season speaks volumes about the Englishman’s qualities as a footballer, especially with the Championship such a taxing league for young players to make their mark in.
With Joao Moutinho now 35 years of age, a gap in Wolves’ midfield could open up next season and Giles may be the man to come in and fill the void, having averaged 2.8 key passes per game in the league in 2021/22 to date.
