McCarthy’s Molineux links and proven track record of developing young players are understood to have given him an edge in the hunt for Giles’ signature.

Giles was named Academy Player of the Year at McCarthy’s old club Wolves in 2018.

He was in the youth system at Molineux during the 62-year-old’s six-year spell with the club between 20016 and 2012.

Giles spent the second half of the 2019-20 campaign on loan with Rotherham in the Championship.

He featured 27 times for the South Yorkshire side in total and missed just one match as they finished 23rd in the second-tier.

He made his senior debut on loan with AFC Telford in 2018 and has also spent time on loan with Shrewsbury Town in League One and Coventry City in the Championship.

Giles made his only senior Wolves appearance in a 2-2 FA Cup draw with Shrewsbury in January 2019.
