Wolves defender Dion Sanderson a target for Sunderland, Sheffield Utd

Wolves defender Dion Sanderson is a target for Sunderland and Sheffield United.

The young centre back excelled at Sunderland during the first part of last season and the newly promoted Championship side have tried to sign him several times since.

They will try again in the coming weeks but face competition from ambitious Sheffield United who narrowly missed out on the play-offs last month, says the Daily Mail.

Paul Heckingbottom's side also tried to sign Sanderson late on in January but by then he had already given his word to join up with Mark Warburton at QPR.

Though that loan failed to pay off, it hasn't deterred the Blades who have posted their interest early as they recognise there will be competition for the 22-year old defender from other Championship sides.

Wolves are open to a sale or loan for Sanderson as they look to revamp their squad and generate funds for the summer.
