The Colorado Rapids signed midfielder Connor Ronan from the Premier League's Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The four-year deal announced Monday for the 24-year-old Irishman includes a club option for 2027.
"Connor is a highly technical and versatile midfielder who can play in both deep-lying and box-to-box midfield roles," Rapids general manager Padraig Smith said. "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."
Ronan spent the 2021-22 season on loan with St. Mirren FC of the Scottish Premiership, contributing eight goals and five assists in 30 appearances.
He joined Wolves as a 16-year-old in 2014 and made his Premier League debut at 18 on Dec. 17, 2016.
Ronan also spent time on loan with clubs in England (Portsmouth FC, Walsall FC, Blackpool FC), Germany (FC DAC 1904) and Switzerland (Grasshopper Club Zurich).
