Giles makes Wolves return

Ryan Giles has been recalled from his loan spell at Cardiff City to add another option to Bruno Lage’s group and continue his progress at Wolves.

The left-sided 21-year-old has impressed on loan in the Championship this season – no player in the division can better his nine assists for the Bluebirds – and now he makes his Molineux return.

Giles has spent 13 years on the books of Wolves and signed a long-term contract with the club in December 2020, before joining Rotherham United, where he scored on his debut this time last year.

This term, another successful loan at Cardiff, where he played in a number of wide positions, has seen the youngster edge close to 100 senior appearances, and his versatility and experience will now be added to Lage’s squad.

The Telford-born youngster now has the opportunity to impress the head coach, who has another option during the testing month of January.

Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said: “Gilo has been doing great out on loan. He’s been playing in numerous positions, on both wings and wing-back, and has done very well. Now, with Covid, injuries and international call-ups, players are dropping out, and he’ll be added to the squad.

“What he’s been doing at Cardiff has been impressive, when he was in forward positions his assist record was outstanding, and this is an opportunity to come back and train with the first-team and show Bruno what he’s learned.

“He came back in the November international break, which was great, and we now need to make sure we have options during the current Covid situation. It’s a chance to work with a Premier League first-team for him and we’re making sure we’re protecting ourselves.”
