Sanderson, of course, spent last term on loan at hte Stadium of Light.

He thoroughly impressed, making 27 appearances in total.

Despite his great form for the Black Cats, there has been speculation over his future.

He has a year remaining on his contract, putting Wolves under a bit of pressure.

According to the Mirror, Newcastle have actually already made a £1.5 million offer. Wolves are said to have turned that down.


It’s explained that Sunderland remain committed to trying to sign Sanderson following his loan.

Sanderson tug-of-war good news for Wolves

If Wolves don’t intend to keep Sanderson, then having two bitter rivals fighting over him is great news.

Potentially, he could end up going for more than the £2 million valuation that has been reported.

It would be a shame if Sanderson departed.

But if that’s what Fosun want, then the goal will be to squeeze as much out of any deal as possible.

Wolves would be smart, though, to insert a sell-on clause.
