Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town are both amongst the sides who are interested in making a potential summer move Wolves defender Dion Sanderson, according to the Football Insider.
Sanderson joined Cardiff on loan for the rest of the season in January, and the 20-year-old has so far made three Championship appearances for the Bluebirds since his arrival, with Wolves thought to be keen on allowing the defender to go out on loan again next season for more regular game time.
Sheffield Wednesday could be in need of adding to their options at the heart of their defence in the summer, with David Bates due to depart the club at the end of an unsuccessful loan spell, and the likes of Tom Lees and Julian Borner having at times been struggling with their performance levels.
Huddersfield, meanwhile, could also be in need of adding to their defensive options in the summer, as Danny Cowley looks to add some extra quality to his squad, to allow them to challenge further up the Championship table next term.

It is thought that Sanderson is also interesting the likes of Premier League duo Aston Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as Cardiff also being in the race to re-sign him again next term – and so his parent club Wolves will face a tough choice of where to send him.
This would appear to be a very smart signing for either Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield to make during the summer, with Sanderson clearly highly thought of by Wolves and attracting the attentions of clubs in the Premier League.
Sanderson offers real versatility to any side that manages to bring him into the club on loan for next season, with the defender primarily a centre half, but also able to operate comfortably at right-back, which is the position in which he has made his three Cardiff appearances.
The 20-year-old clearly has a lot of potential to develop into an excellent performer in the Championship were he to be given more regular minutes, and given Huddersfield’s success with some of their loan additions this term they could potentially have another to add that list here.
For Sheffield Wednesday, this could represent a potential change in their approach to their transfer business, with the signing of a player of Sanderson’s age and potential to develop over the course of a season, rather than giving high wages to a player who is not the finished article.
