Wolves clearly don’t think that Dion Sanderson is good enough amid interest from Sunderland, according to Steve Bull.
The central defender is registered to the Premier League club but looks to be facing an uncertain future as interest builds in his services.
Sanderson is the subject of interest from the Black Cats who are keen to bring the player back to the Stadium Of Light on a permanent basis following a successful loan spell last term where he established himself as a key player under Lee Johnson.
Sunderland have already seen a £1million bid rejected for the central defender, but it seems that this won’t deter them as they prepare another approach for the player.
But while interest is gathering pace, Bull believes that Wolves will let the player go as he hasn’t quite developed in the way that the club would like.
Speaking to Football Fancast, Bull said: “I think that Wolves would have sent him out on loan to see if he managed to get any better but obviously they don’t think he has.
“In other people’s eyes, he’s probably a top-class player but, in Wolves’ eyes, he’s not and they must have somebody else on their radar that is better.”

It’s hard to argue with Steve Bull’s view.
Dion Sanderson is a player of great potential but it certainly seems that he’s someone that Wolves won’t mind letting go.
The defender could improve a lot in the future but as it stands there’s likely to be a long distance between where he is now and being capable of leading a defence for a top half Premier League side.
This is obviously great news for Sunderland though, with the Black Cats seemingly determined to get a deal wrapped up.
