Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Dion Sanderson has emerged as a transfer target for three Premier League clubs, as he continues to impress at Sunderland.

The centre-half is on a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light and has in recent weeks made a huge impression for the Black Cats.

He’s shown great maturity and versatility for the League One side and was recently branded a ‘Rolls Royce’ by Johnson (via Chronicle Live).

It was also reported by the same publication that Sunderland will explore the possibility of signing Sanderson permanently.

Some fans have been discussing the report on social media.
