Steve Bull thinks that Wolves youngster Dion Sanderson deserves a chance to impress in the first-team in pre-season.
Sanderson has come through the Academy having been with the club since he was a boy, but has made just the one appearance in the first-team in a Carabao Cup tie at Aston Villa in October 2019.
Since then, the 21-year-old has enjoyed successful loan spells with both Cardiff and Sunderland, although a back problem saw him miss the latter’s play-off campaign.
Despite being absent for Sunderland’s final eight League One fixtures, the promising defender, who’s able to play anywhere across the back four, was still named as the Supporters’ Young Player of the Year for his excellent form prior to that injury.
Sanderson turned out 28 times in all competitions for the Black Cats, and more than played his part in their two-month unbeaten run at one point which left them on course for automatic promotion.
Having proved himself in the lower leagues, following on from his brief stint with Cardiff 12 months earlier, Bull exclusively told Football FanCast that he wants Sanderson to be given an opportunity to impress at his parent club:
“I can’t understand why they don’t bring him back, let’s see what he can do in pre-season!”
