Wolves are reportedly giving strong consideration to a recall for Dion Sanderson.
The Athletic report club officials are making regular checks on the 21-year-old, who is currently on loan at Birmingham City.
As was the case at Sunderland last season, Sanderson is really impressing.
The ace is a regular in Lee Bowyer’s starting XI, and often comes in for praise from Birmingham supporters.
So far this term he has made 12 appearances, and Sanderson’s development is coming along nicely.
With Wolves lacking central defensive options at the moment, Sanderson could apparently now be heading back to Molineux. According to Tim Spiers, he is ‘smashing it’ in the Championship.
Romain Saiss will be heading off to AFCON, and Willy Boly could also be if he recovers from his latest setback. Yerson Mosquera is also out until around mid-January.
Sanderson has only ever made one appearance for the Wolves first-team, which came in the Carabao Cup against Aston Villa in 2019/20.
Dion Sanderson recall might not be a bad shout from Wolves
This may not be a bad call from Wolves.
Sanderson is regularly impressing at St Andrew’s and could soon be ready to play in the Premier League.
Wolves probably need to make two centre-back additions in January and Sanderson could help save the club some money.
Getting him back, and signing someone like Sven Botman would make the situation much healthier.
That said, there could be temptation to leave him in place, given how well he is doing and the momentum he has built up.
