Sheffield Wednesday join Cardiff and Huddersfield in race for Wolves man

Published

Sheffield Wednesday have reportedly joined the race for Wolves defender Dion Sanderson with Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town, and Rotherham United also thought to be keen. 

The Owls had a busy day yesterday, signing both Elias Kachunga and Josh Windass, and though Garry Monk has suggested no further moves are close it appears there are more players on their radar.

According to Yorkshire Live, Wednesday are monitoring Sanderson closely and are great admirers of the Wolves defender.

They’re not the only Championship club keen, however, as it is understood that Cardiff, Huddersfield and Rotherham are also keen on the 20-year-old.

Sanderson, who is capable of playing as centre-back, full-back or wing-back, spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan with the Bluebirds – featuring 10 times and helping them qualify for the play-offs.

A product of the Wolves academy, the defender has a fair amount of experience for the Midlands club’s age-group sides but has featured just once at senior level, playing all 90 minutes in the 2-1 EFL Cup fourth round defeat to Aston Villa last season.

The Verdict

If Wednesday can win the race for Sanderson, this looks as though it could be a very smart bit of business.

The 20-year-old is a bright prospect and got up to speed at Championship level pretty quickly at Cardiff last term, which should give Monk no doubts about his capability this season should he join the club.

His versatility would be a real bonus for the Owls boss, making him an ideal defender to bring in as cover – though you feel if given a chance he may well win a starting spot.

The recent exit of Matt Doherty, who left Wolves to join Tottenham, could make the Premier League club more cautious of letting him go.
