Sunderland have reportedly made an opening bid for Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Dion Sanderson.
According to the Daily Mail, the Black Cats have tabled a £1 million offer for the 21-year-old.
Wolves have rejected that proposal. It’s claimed the Premier League side are looking for at least double that amount.
Sunderland making an official bid comes as no surprise.
Sanderson was hugely impressive on loan at the Stadium of Light last season.
He wowed supporters with his high and consistent performance levels.
That appears to be the case now, but they’ll have to increase their offer if they really want him.
The Daily Mail add that Cardiff City, Birmingham City, Stoke City, Luton Town and Millwall are all on his tail.
Wolves have just brought in Yerson Mosquera from Atletico Nacional. In theory, that pushes Sanderson closer to the exit.
On social media, fans have been giving their reactions to the £1 million bid from Sunderland.
For many, it’s hard to understand why the club are seemingly open to letting him leave for so cheap. And some simply laughed off Sunderland’s offer:
That is pathetic

I’d loan him out again, if that’s all we’re being offered. Unless our coaches really don’t see him improving much, why would we sell for that?!

I should damn well think so that’s nowhere near enough.

Should not be selling him point blank imo . Especially since new manager is in . Sanderson will be a top player imo

I know they’re third-tier, but that’s embarrassing. £4m absolute minimum and I’d be VERY hesitant in selling at that much.

One million pounds. 😂 Sunderland can actually forget it, no way can they afford Dion if that’s their opening offer. https://t.co/SB3hFT1FhQ
