Cardiff City are reportedly in the driving seat to resign Wolves youngster Dion Sanderson this summer, with the Mail on Sunday reporting that the Bluebirds are now favourites to secure the 20-year-old on loan.
Sanderson of course spent a large portion of the current season on loan with the Welsh club after arriving back in January – providing Neil Harris with a solid option at both full back and centre back.
The youngster is now seemingly set for another temporary move away from Molineux this summer, with a number of clubs including Rangers having shown an interest in acquiring the versatile academy graduate.
A player who shows supreme confidence in possession, Sanderson was used largely at right back by Harris this term, making a total of 10 appearances for the Bluebirds as they just missed out in the play-offs to a well drilled Fulham side.
With just one year remaining on his current contract at Wolves, the youngster will no doubt be keen to prove he deserves fresh terms once he decides on his next move over the coming weeks and months.
Quiz: Do you remember which club Cardiff City signed these 15 players from?
It is no surprise to see that Cardiff are now the frontrunners for Sanderson’s signature, with the defender having really thrived at the club under Harris this term.
With Rangers having now opted to sign Leon Balogun from Brighton this week, the path now seems clear for the Bluebirds to secure the services of the 20-year-old for another season.
The player’s capability of playing in numerous roles across the back four makes him an ideal addition for Harris who will be seeking to go one better with his club in the forthcoming campaign after just falling short of promotion this time around.
Lastly, the move is also likely to appeal to Sanderson as he seeks to make a lasting impression on Nuno Espirito Santo as his current deal runs into it’s last year at Wolves.
