Sunderland: Roker Report delighted with Dion Sanderson links -Sunderland News

Sunderland podcast Roker Report are delighted with the rumours linking Wolves defender Dion Sanderson with a move to the Black Cats.

The Lowdown: Sanderson’s loan

The centre-back enjoyed a successful loan stint at Sunderland during the 2020/21 campaign. After biding his time under former boss Lee Johnson, Sanderson established himself as a key member of the Wearside club’s squad, racking up 23 appearances for the former Black Cats boss, scoring once.

The defender then returned to Wolves on the expiry of his loan deal, where he penned a new contract before spending the season on loans at Birmingham City and QPR in the Championship.

The Latest: Roker Report’s reaction

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Roker Report shared a Daily Mail article linking Sanderson with a return to play under Alex Neil.

Roker Report were clearly delighted with the news, proclaiming “Yes please!”

According to the Daily Mail’s report, Sunderland tried to sign the youngster several times after his successful loan spell at the club, and are now facing competition from Sheffield United, who went after him in January.

Sunderland fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Great signing

Sanderson could be a great signing for Neil given his experience in the Championship; having featured 36 times in the league, 26 of these appearances came this season, so the defender should be able to come straight in and perform at the level required upon his arrival at the Stadium of Light.
