The future of Wolves defender Dion Sanderson is up in the air this summer.
Sanderson spent last season out on loan at Sunderland in League One. Earlier this week, Lee Johnson’s side made reportedly made a bid to buy him.
As per the Sunderland Echo, it was worth around £1 million, and they claim Wolves want £2 million.
The Sheffield Star report Sanderson could cost even more than that, at more than double the initial bid from Sunderland.
They report that Sanderson is expecting Sheffield United to bid for him this summer.
The Blades were of course relegated from the Premier League last season and will play in the Championship next term.
The report also says that Sheffield United have been scouting him for around 12 months.
There has been a change in the dugout with Slavisa Jokanovic coming in, but the former Fulham boss apparently wants to bolster his defence.
Will Sanderson leave Wolves?
The opportunity to progress his career with regular football in the second tier could be too good to turn down.
That said, he has a new manager now in Bruno Lage. That means a clean slate and Sanderson could get a chance to impress in pre-season.
Lage also has a reputation for bringing through young players, which may pique Sanderson’s interest.
Of course, it depends whether any buying club gets close to Wolves’ valuation, despite conflicting reports about what that price actually is.
