Wolves could recall Dion Sanderson from his loan in the Championship with Birmingham in January.

The Athletic claim that is an option the club is looking at to boost Bruno Lage’s central defensive options.

Romain Saiss and Willy Boly are due to go to the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

That could leave Lage light at the back, with Yerson Mosquera a long-term injury absentee.

And instead of making a January signing, Wolves could recall Sanderson from St Andrew’s.

The report suggests he could be used as cover for January before leaving on loan again before the end of the window.


Would that be the best for the player’s development? Probably not, as he would prefer to continue playing every week.

That said, it would give Lage an opportunity to see him up close and maybe allow Sanderson to make his Premier League debut.

Perhaps Sanderson could go back to Birmingham, although it would remain to be seen how cutting short his loan in January would affect the relationship between the clubs.

Maybe Sanderson would impress enough to stay at Wolves until the end of the season, but he is likely to follow Morgan Gibbs-White’s example.

He would rather play every week in the Championship than be a substitute in the Premier League.
