Meanwhile, Wolves and Ireland U21 prospect Connor Ronan has left the club on loan to join Streda in the Slovakian Super League. He spent the first half of the season with League One side Walsall, where he played 15 appearances in all competitions.
Ronan is the second young Irish player to move to the continent on loan in recent months. Former UCD player Simon Power also left Norwich to join Dutch second-tier side Dordrecht on loan. Power signed a new two-year contract with the Championship club before completing the deal.
Few Irish players are currently playing on the continent, but Ronan, Power and Inter Milan's Ryan Nolan represent a new generation of youngsters breaking the mould.
