Wolves youngster Connor Ronan needs to seal a permanent move away from Molineux despite his undoubted ability, according to journalist Tim Spiers.
The Lowdown: Ronan shining out on loan
The 24-year-old is currently out on loan at St Mirren, having joined the Scottish Premiership side on a temporary basis last summer.
Ronan has done well during his time there to date, scoring seven goals and registering three assists in 21 league starts, catching the eye in the middle of the park.
It is just the latest of many loan moves for the midfielder, however, and it could be that a permanent Wolves exit makes sense this summer.

The Latest: Spiers calls for permanent Wolves exit
That is certainly the opinion of Spiers, who took to Twitter on Thursday to laud Ronan’s quality but also admit it is time for him to leave Wanderers for good:
“Lage likes him, in fact everyone does. Not sure how you couldn’t really, his technique is so good. Just never quite fitted in and the first team standard is so high. He’s 24, the loans have been good for developing his game and he needs a permanent home now.”
The Verdict: Makes perfect sense
At 24, this is now a crucial point in Ronan’s career and he needs to be settled at a new club in order to reach his potential.
Jumping between teams on loan can be good experience for a player in his late teens or early 20s but the Irishman is now beyond that point and has to become less nomadic.
It is hard to see how he will ever become a key figure at Wolves – he has only made 13 first-team appearances for the club – so a move away makes sense for all parties.
In other news, Spiers has also been left wowed by one Wolves player. Find out who it is here.
