Wolves resist Sunderland, Newcastle offers to send Sanderson to Birmingham

Birmingham City are set to snap up Wolves defender Dion Sanderson.

The Daily Mail says Wolves rejected offers from Sunderland and Newcastle United for Sanderson who had one year left on contract.

The 21-year-old, who is the nephew of six-time Olympian Tessa Sanderson, was impressive on loan at League One Sunderland last season and played a pivotal role in their bid for promotion prior to picking up a back injury.

"We are hoping that that will get done soon," Birmingham manager Lee Bowyer told BBC RadioWM. "Something has been agreed but he's just coming back from injury so we are making sure everything is right on the medical side. It's another good addition to the squad."
