Crystal Palace have joined Premier League rivals Sheffield United in the race to sign Wolves centre-back Dion Sanderson.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Football Insider, who claim that the Eagles and Championship outfit Huddersfield Town are now in the hunt for the 21-year-old alongside the Blades.
Sanderson open to move away from Wolves
Sanderson, who has been out on loan at Sunderland this season, is hoping to make his mark with his parent club.
However, the report claims the defender is privately open to a move away from Molineux, should Wolves decide to cash in on him.
Should Palace get rid of Hodgson this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
Sunderland manager Lee Johnson heaped praise on Sanderson just last month, calling him a ‘Rolls-Royce’ and a ‘leader’ even at his young age, so at just £2m this could be a good move for the Eagles to make.
Palace have just one centre-back under the age of 30 on their books at this moment in time, so an injection of youth may prove beneficial in the coming years.
Sanderson has gained plenty of experience at the Stadium of Light this season, making 22 appearances in all competitions.
He’s also plied his trade with Cardiff City in the Championship, so if Palace can offer him game time next season, a deal may well be on the cards.
