Now, a report has emerged claiming that League One side Sunderland are looking to strike a loan agreement for Sanderson. After Arbenit Xhemajli suffered a season-ending injury, it appears that Phil Parkinson has turned to the Wolves starlet in his efforts to bolster his defensive ranks.

With the domestic window closing later today, Sunderland will have to act fast to strike a deal or risk running low on defensive options until January.

Sanderson, 20, has only played once for Wolves’ senior side since making his way through the club’s youth academy. The defender has notched up 46 appearances for the club’s Under-18s and has also featured 27 times for the Under-23s.
