Wolves have rejected an opening bid from Sunderland for young defender Dion Sanderson.

It also coincided with Sunderland’s promotion push faltering and they are keen to bring him back on a permanent basis.

However, their first offer, understood to be around £1million, was rejected swiftly by Premier League Wolves.
The Molineux club have already brought in Colombian centre back Yerson Musquera for £4.5m from Atletico Nacional so are willing to listen to offers for Sanderson but expect better than the bid that is on the table and want closer to £2m.
Cardiff City, Birmingham City, Stoke City, Luton Town and Millwall all share an interest in Sanderson and are monitoring developments.

However the asking price may deter any potential suitors.
Recently relegated Sheffield United have also been keeping tabs on the defender but as yet have shown no sign of following up on their interest.
Sanderson featured 26 times in League One this term and Sunderland’s North East rivals Newcastle United have also been keeping a close eye on his development.
