Aberdeen and Hearts are tracking Connor Ronan on loan from St Mirren for a stunning transfer.
Both the Dons and the Jambos were impressed with the impact the Wolves midfielder had during his breakout spell at Paisley.
Save sport revealed this week that the 24-year-old is closing in on a Republic of Ireland debut after scoring seven goals with a stunning strike in Saturday’s Scottish Cup quarter-final loss to Hearts.
Jambos athletic director Joe Savage is now watching Ronan closely – as is Aberdeen, which is managed by Jim Goodwin.
It was Goodwin who took Ronan north when he was manager of St Mirren earlier in the season.
The player has made it clear he enjoys his football and hopes his performances can help him back into Premier League plans at Wolves, where he still has a year left on his contract.
Any deal hinges on whether the Premier League club let him return to the north on loan or he can even sell.
It’s likely it would take an offer over £500,000 for Wolves to even consider selling.
If he were available on loan, that’s also a deal St Mirren would like to renew as well.
Ronan made his Wolves debut six years ago but since then has been on loan at Portsmouth, Walsall, DAC Dunajska Streda, Blackpool, Grasshopper and now St Mirren.
Aberdeen boss Goodwin has already targeted St Mirren’s Jak Alnwick.
The goalkeeper is out of contract this summer and the Irishman wants to offer him a summer transfer to Pittodrie.
Alwnick is another player Goodwin has signed and worked closely with.
