Jordan Graham sends message on Twitter to Wolves' award-winning Connor Ronan

Wolves youngster Connor Ronan has won the Republic of Ireland's Under-17 International Player of the Year award.

Wolverhampton Wanderers teenager Connor Ronan has taken to Twitter after winning the Republic of Ireland's Under-17 International Player of the Year award - and he received a message of congratulations from first-team star Jordan Graham.

Ronan, 18, had been on the books with Bury before joining hometown and boyhood club Rochdale, but left Spotland at the age of 16 having been offered a deal by Wolves in 2014.

The young midfielder has been tipped for big things having represented England's Under-17 side twice, once as a substitute and once as a starter, before switching his allegiance to the Republic of Ireland.

Now, Ronan's performances for the Irish Under-17 side have been recognised, as on Sunday evening, he won the Under-17 International Player of the Year award for his country.

Ronan took to Twitter to celebrate, thanking his friends and family, before receiving a message from Wolves' first team star Jordan Graham.

Winger Graham, who is currently sidelined with a major injury, also took to Twitter to tell Ronan that he deserved his award, before he encouraged him to keep on performing for club and country - and Ronan will no doubt be looking for a senior appearance for Wolves in the near future.

Do you think Ronan can become a star of the future for Wolves?
