Colorado Rapids acquire Connor Ronan from Wolverhampton Wanderers


It’s getting crowded in the Colorado Rapids’ midfield, but to acquire Premier League talent, it’s an area of the field the front office is happily willing to help carve out space for.

The Colorado Rapids announced Monday morning the team had acquired Connor Ronan from English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers. The deal is for four seasons with an option of a fifth year.

Liam Keen of the Express and Star in England who covers Wolves, reported the transfer fee was for £500,000 (or $619,000) for Colorado to permanently acquire the Irish international midfielder.

“Connor is a highly technical and versatile midfielder who can play in both deep-lying and box-to-box midfield roles,” Rapids general manager Pádraig Smith said in a team statement. “He brings a high level of energy and ability to cover a lot of ground defensively, but also exceptional vision and passing qualities. We’re excited to add a player of his talent to our roster and look forward to welcoming him to Colorado.”
