Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Dion Sanderson is making quite a name for himself away from Molineux on loan.
The 21-year-old defender is one of the brightest young players to come through the Wolves ranks.
Sanderson, who stands a mighty 6ft 2in, made his first-team debut for Wolves in an EFL Cup tie against Aston Villa in October 2019.
He joined Cardiff in January 2020 on a six-month loan deal, where he made 10 appearances, registering two assists.
While the Bluebirds reportedly discussed the possibility of another loan this season, Sanderson opted to join Sunderland in October last year.
He did so after penning a contract extension at Molineux, which takes him to the summer of 2022.
To date, Sanderson has made 18 appearances for the Black Cats, and has helped Lee Johnson’s side surge into League One promotion contention.
He featured for Sunderland in Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Swindon, which moved the Stadium of Light outfit to within five points of second place.
Sanderson delivered another strong performance, carrying the ball out well, passing effectively and carrying out his defensive duties superbly.
Needless to say, he has become a firm fan favourite on Wearside, with supporters tipping him for stardom and one even deeming him the new Sergio Ramos:
Another solid performance Dion. What ever happens in the future SAFC fans will never forget what you have done in your time here. I personally would like to see you progress in red and white.

Well played again big lad… get on the phone to the agent and sort out a permanent contract for next season, in the chp. You know it makes sense.
