Wolves are interested in signing Rochdale centre-back Ryan Delaney with the 21-year-old impressing since his January move from Burton Albion, according to Football League World. 

The football news website claims that a source close to the enforcer has confirmed that there is renewed Championship interest in Delaney, with Middlesbrough also in the hunt.

Football League World report that his commanding presence at the back and his mature displays are the reasons he is being eyed up by the two Championship outfits.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international made 33 appearances for Cork City while on loan from Burton, before his move to Rochdale last month.

It is said that the 6ft 5in enforcer can play at both centre-back and right-back.

Good move for Wolves?

It is hard to say, as Delaney has minimal experience at a high level.

He was seemingly overlooked by Burton, who are at the opposite end of the Championship table to Wolves, which suggests he may need a bit more time to develop.

However, Wolves’ recruitment in recent times has been brilliant, and there must be a reason why Delaney has caught the eye of the club.

Likely to happen?

Considering Delaney only just joined Rochdale in January, a move away in the summer would seem a bit rash.

However, if Wolves achieve their promotion to the Premier League, which at this point looks inevitable, then the youngster will surely not be able to resist.

Firstly, Wolves will have to make their interest concrete, and there is still a way to go in the season yet.
