Wolves have given the ‘green light’ for Dion Sanderson to make a permanent exit in the summer transfer window, according to Football Insider.
Former boss Nuno Espirito Santo apparently doubted the defender’s Premier League prospects and reckoned he was better suited to the Championship.
The Portuguese manager left the club at the end of the season, perhaps raising hopes that the Sunderland loanee would be given a chance in 2021/22, but the report claimed that the change in the dugout will make little difference to Sanderson’s situation.
It’s claimed that Wolves value at him at just over £2m, with only a year remaining on his contract. Sunderland are looking to strike a permanent deal for the 21-year-old, but there is competition from clubs in the Championship after a campaign in which he won the admiration of numerous Black Cats supporters for his fine performances.
Sanderson has played one game for Wolves’ senior side, featuring in a 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat to Reading in October 2019.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the report, and here’s what some supporters made of it, with a few urging likely new manager Bruno Lage to “have a look” at the defender before sanctioning his exit from Molineux.
Wolves fans bemoan potential departure of Sanderson
“This is good management isn’t it….loan a player out to get experience, they win young player of the year at that club and get glowing feedback, so we decide to sell him instead of having a look at him to see how much he has developed! Ridiculous.”
“Another mistake, I swear this club at the moment is just sending us bad news 24/7.”
“I hope this isn’t true. Surely it would be wise for Lage to have a look at Dion before any decision is made. Given how good he is working with and bringing through young players, it would seem to make sense.”
“That just about sums us up at the moment, I thought we were supposed to be developing young players for the future, Jeff Shi. He was one of the players that I thought could have made the grade, shame that if it’s true”
“We seem to be happy to flog anyone now, what happened to us becoming a top 6 team?”
“Is there ever any good news?”
