Former Coventry City lender tearing him apart in the league called back again by parent club


Former Coventry City loan star Ryan Giles has been called up by parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers for the second consecutive January transfer window.

Wolves prematurely ended the quick winger’s stay with the Sky Blues last January after being left out against Reading, a five-loan victim in a team rule following the arrival of Viktor Gyokeres from Brighton as as City’s sixth loan signing of the season.

The 21-year-old was immediately redirected to City’s league relegation rivals Rotherham ahead of a summer move to Cardiff, where he thrived for the first half of the campaign.

Giles made 21 league appearances with the Bluebirds, all but two of which were starts.

And although he hasn’t scored for Cardiff, he sits first in the league’s assists table with nine, alongside Reading’s John Swift.

“We would like to thank Ryan for his efforts during his stay in South Wales and wish him the best of luck for the future,” said a statement from Cardiff.

Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said: “Gilo has done very well on loan. well done.

“Now with Covid, injuries and international calls, the players are giving up and he will be added to the squad.

“What he did at Cardiff was impressive, when he was up front his assists record was exceptional, and it’s a chance to come back and train with the first team and show (manager ) Bruno Lage what he learned. “
