Sheffield Utd, Brighton tracking Wolves defender Dion Sanderson

Wolves defender Dion Sanderson continues to attract admiring glances on-loan with Sunderland.

The Daily Mail says Sanderson is attracting interest from Sheffield United, Brighton and Crystal Palace.

The 21-year old is impressing on loan at League One Sunderland, who are keen to make his move permanent but his performances have alerted Championship sides too, such as Bristol City and Huddersfield Town.

Wolves rate Sanderson but with competition for centre back places fierce they are likely to consider offers in the summer with just one year left on his contract.

Sanderson has revelled in his spell under Sunderland boss Lee Johnson. He opened the scoring with a seventh minute header in the 2-0 win over Rochdale on Saturday to help push Sunderland into fourth place.

He has earned plenty of plaudits with former players and observers saying he is one of their best loan signings in recent years.
