Wolves youngster Dion Sanderson responds when asked about his future amid mounting interest

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dion Sanderson wouldn’t be drawn on speculation about his future when asked.

The 21-year-old’s loan at Sunderland is going really well now after some early struggles for regular minutes.

Sanderson is now a regular under Lee Johnson for the League One outfit, who are in contention to achieve promotion at the end of the season.

The Black Cats currently sit fourth on 57 points, and automatic promotion is not yet out of the question.

Sanderson has been at the very heart of Sunderland’s rise up the table, and the Daily Mail claimed last week that several Premier League clubs are now circling the defender.

It’s also been reported Sunderland will explore the possibility of signing him permanently.

Many eyes will be on Sanderson’s situation this summer, but he isn’t thinking about anything just yet.

Asked if he’s had any thoughts on his future, he said (via Sunderland Echo): “Not really.

“For the time being I’m just enjoying my football really – taking it game by game, winning and enjoying it.

“I haven’t really thought much of it, it’s just enjoying my football.”

No surprises there

The boy has been well advised.

It’s best right now for him to let his football do the talking rather than be drawn on potential destinations next season.

He’s built up great momentum and needs to keep focused.

Hopefully he can continue to shine bright, and stake a real claim to be in the Wolves first-team squad next term.
