Wolves still plan to sell Dion Sanderson this summer, despite the arrival of a new head coach in Bruno Lage.

The Northern Echo reported yesterday that the central defender is seen as a means of raising funds.

The player’s future will apparently be resolved ‘shortly’, and there is a bit of a scramble for his services.

Firstly, Sunderland, his loan club last season, want to sign him permanently.

Secondly, Sheffield United are said to be long-term admirers.

And then the likes of Huddersfield Town, Stoke City and Birmingham City have all been linked.

Wolves have already decided to cash in, rather than wait for Lage to run the rule over the youngsters.


Sanderson is thought to be valued at around £2 million.

Wolves could be making a mistake

The Northern Echo’s report seems quite sure Sanderson will be departing this summer.

If he does it will be a bit of a shame.

That Lage will apparently not get at look at him seems a little strange.

If he is to be sold, then hopefully it will be for more than the £2 million that’s been reported.
