Talented young Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dion Sanderson has reiterated his desire to play in the Premier League with his parent club.

The 21-year-old is currently enjoying a very productive spell on loan at Sunderland.

Sanderson has emerged as a key player for the Black Cats in recent weeks.

He’s helped Lee Johnson’s side become much more solid and climb the table up into third place.

Automatic promotion is now the target, and there is most definitely a reasonable chance of that.

Sanderson has been speaking to the Wolves’ official website about his time at the Stadium of Light.

Recently there has been speculation about his future, with Crystal Palace, Brighton and Sheffield United all reportedly keen to snap him up (Daily Mail), as well as Sunderland permanently.

But it seems the player is hoping for a chance in the Wolves first-team. He said: “If the opportunity to play for Wolves presented itself, I would take it. Wolves have been my boyhood club, and it’s where I see myself in the future.

“I definitely see myself in the Premier League. I just have to keep my standards high for myself – that’s my aspiration and where I want to be.”

Sanderson should be given the chance he wants

Clearly Sanderson is very keen to be given a chance by Nuno Espirito Santo.

Given the way he’s been playing for Sunderland, he deserves looking at in pre-season.

There’s surely no harm in that, and the youngster could potentially end up saving Wolves millions in the transfer market.
