Sanderson set for QPR medical ahead of loan exit

Wolves defender Dion Sanderson is set for a medical at Queens Park Rangers ahead of a loan move today, as per West London Sport.

Sanderson was recalled by Wolves from an impressive loan spell at Birmingham City earlier this month to add cover to the squad.

But Bruno Lage seems to feel he has enough at the back to get through the rest of the season and he can continue his development in the second tier.

That is likely partially down to the emergence of Toti Gomes, who made his debut in the win over Southampton and shone.

It might have been expected that Sanderson would be the man to replace Romain Saiss in the Wolves backline during the Africa Cup of Nations.

But Toti got the nod and took his chance supremely, laying the groundwork for Sanderson to go back out on loan and keep on playing.

QPR are firmly in the Championship promotion race, sitting fourth in the table under former Rangers manager Mark Warburton.

They will hoping to nail down at least a play-off place come May and the arrival of Sanderson should help bolster their backline.

Sanderson is set to play alongside Rob Dickie at Loftus Road and the central defender has been a reported target for Wolves in the past.
