Blackpool have signed midfielder Connor Ronan on loan from Wolves, as announced by their official club website this afternoon.

The ex-Republic of Ireland has joined the Seasiders on a deal until the end of the season.

Ronan, who is 21 years old, has spent the past year out on loan in the Slovakian top flight with DAC Dunajska Streda. He made 24 appearances for the Slovak Super Liga outfit, chipping in with two goals.

The midfielder joined Wolves in 2014 as a youngster having previously been on the books at Rochdale and has since played 16 times for the Midlands side.

He has also had other loan spells away from Molineux with Portsmouth and Walsall in the past and is now looking forward to a fresh challenge at Bloomfield Road.

After joining the Tangerines today, Ronan told their website: “I like to get on the ball and try and make things happen. I’ll take risks in the opposite half, try and get a few assists and chip in with a few goals. All in all, I just want to help the team wherever I can and try and help the team get back to where it belongs.”

His new boss Simon Grayson said: “Connor’s an exciting player and the type of player that we’ve been missing this season. A lot of people speak highly about him and he’s had some good experience out in Slovakia, as well as internationally for Ireland at under-21 level. We’re looking for him to get on the ball, pick a pass and add something different to the squad.”
