Report: West Ham plotting summer bid for Wolves defender Dion Sanderson

According to a report from the Daily Mail, West Ham are monitoring Wolves starlet Dion Sanderson, and will intensify their interest once the season resumes.

The 20-year-old centre-back left Wolves to join Cardiff on loan in January, but he has only made three appearances for the Bluebirds thus far.

In those three outings, Sanderson has won an average of 2.3 aerial duals. On average, the youngster has made 1.7 tackles, 2.7 interceptions and 2.7 clearances during those appearances (Who Scored).

He only made one senior outing for the Black Country outfit before leaving on loan, but he did really impress in 15 appearances for the club’s under-23 side.

Although Sanderson is a centre-back by trade, he has been playing as a right-back recently.

The Daily Mail claims that the Wolves owned youngster has already really impressed Cardiff boss Neil Harris.

And he is clearly not the only one who has been impressed by Sanderson.

The Daily Mail suggests that West Ham are monitoring the young defender and could be ready to make a bid for the Wolves starlet in the summer.

They will face competition from the likes of Aston Villa, Brighton and Norwich City, however.

So it remains to be seen whether the Hammers will actually be successful in their pursuit of the Wolves defender.
