Here’s what you about the ex-Leeds United man on social media:

On Twitter, @Adamhutch said: “Worth asking imo if we get promoted. We need a left back.”

Indeed, another potential summer transfer drama could involve Sunderland loanee Dion Sanderson.

The defender has been linked with £2m move to Crystal Palace and Sheffield United – with Sunderland also retaining an interest in securing his services on a permanent deal.

Amidst talk surrounding a potential move, Sanderson said: "Wolves have been my boyhood club, and it's where I see myself in the future."

Here’s what you said about the Wolves loanee defender on social media:

@SAFCSpencer: “Don’t blame him. I love him but he’s definitely premier league quality or close to it. Would be a big miss.”

@LeBenjiboo: “Meh. We'll sign someone else. Not the only decent centre half out there, remember we're absolutely minted now anarl!”

@mattysouvlaki: “Not OK.”

Asked if Sunderland should attempt to sign Sanderson during the summer window, @MalcolmPEARSO15 said: “Definitely.”

@bamgboyeolu added: “Yes I would like to see him sign permanently he’s the one that impressed me he has been brilliant and Johnson likes him as well.”

And @Philip_RJ89s concluded: “Yes. He could become the cornerstone of our defence if we could sign him permanently. He’s got it. Simple as that.”
