Wolves youngster Dion Sanderson could be set to leave the club in the next couple of days, with two Championship clubs reportedly interested him.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City are keen to add the defender to their ranks before Friday’s domestic transfer deadline.

Cardiff, of course, had Sanderson on loan for the second half of last season with the 20-year-old making 10 appearances for the Welsh club.

The Mail’s report says Wolves would be open to loaning out or selling the player if a suitable offer was forthcoming.

Sanderson, who made his first-team debut for Wolves in the EFL Cup last season against Aston Villa, has just one year remaining on his contract at Molineux.

 

Sanderson has been with the club since the age of eight, and played a crucial role in the club’s PL2 Division 2 title-winning season in 2018/19.

Wolves should look to loan

Sanderson was only able to play 10 games for Cardiff last term, so it could be best for Wolves to try and facilitate another loan.

He arguably needs more time experiencing senior football, and a season-and-a-half should be enough of a chance for the club to then gauge whether or not he can be of use in the first-team.

Even though the Wolves first-team is well stocked for central defenders and right-backs at the moment, outright selling Sanderson now might be too hasty a decision.
