    i think S.K will give him a chance and want him to play. The pitches there are amazing.

Historically they are one of the strongest Swiss clubs I suppose and finished 3rd last year in Challenge league (top 2 get promoted) so you’d expect them to be promoted this year...
    Should improve him over the grass with mobility anyways !

    Such a great prospect this guy. I watched him live at Toulon on t.v. He is a remarkable talent. Reminds me of Hoolahan,

    I'm ok with this move. He might have hated the lower leagues in England when he was on loan last season. Hes probably more suited to continental football being small and technical. Keeps him playing 1st team football. If he doesn't make it at Wolves he might have options in other countries in the long term.

    Jack Byrne similarly did well on continent and was disaster in lower English leagues. Id rather see Ronan end up in a decent European team than back in LOI living with his Mam (I know Ronan is English born before anyone corrects me)

    New four year deal at Wolves - https://www.wolves.co.uk/news/under-...new-contract/#

    Contracted at Wolves beyond his 26th birthday now. Certainly gives him job security but I really do wonder whether he will ever break into the Wolves first team.

    Surely at 22 he should be looking to join a club that can offer him first team football at a lower level. He looked decent at Blackpool last season so there's no reason why his agent shouldn't be able to secure a move to a decent Championship club.

    We've plenty lads at that, its an interesting one to keep an eye on I think, the way they are going about this if nothing else to see if he ends up any better of for it in the end.

    The four year deal is a pleasant surprise, really didn't expect that out of Wolves who must see something in him to offer it

    Could it be just a ploy by Wolves to ensure he doesn't leave on a free? That when they decide to let him go, they get a nice six- or low-seven-figure sum from a Championship/League One/Continental team.

    My guess is that Wolves owners are anxious for a homegrown player or two to make the step up and the club are hedging their bets.

    He’s got ample ability. It’s definitely less likely rather than more likely and in my opinion, playing in the second division in Switzerland is very much a backward step. I knew a lad who struggled to get into Finn Harps and UCD’s sides who played in that division during his Erasmus. That’s the level we’re talking about...

    He’s got a touch of Wes about him and I think in reality, playing in a good footballing team with good players around him like Wolves, he’d have a chance to be very good.

    Whatever about the level of the loan, the onus is on him to rip it up there and prove he's too good for that level.

    Grasshopper are owned by the Wolves owner's wife so they're pretty much sister clubs. They're expected to dominate their league this year so Ronan will at least be in a team on the front foot at a decent level.

    That was more through the agent connection - Mendes would have strong links on both sides there.
