COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — The Colorado Rapids have signed midfielder Connor Ronan from English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers FC (Wolves).

The Rapids announced Monday that Ronan will join the club on a four-year deal with a club option for an additional year, pending completion of his medical and receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P-1 Visa.

Ronan, 24, joins the Rapids after spending the 2021 season on loan with St. Mirren FC of the Scottish Premiership where he was named the club’s Player of the Year.

"Connor is a highly technical and versatile midfielder who can play in both deep-lying and box-to-box midfield roles," Pádraig Smith, Colorado Rapids Executive VP & General Manager, said.

"He brings a high level of energy and ability to cover a lot of ground defensively, but also exceptional vision and passing qualities," Smith added. "We’re excited to add a player of his talent to our roster and look forward to welcoming him to Colorado."
