Biography

Dion Sanderson joined Wolves at the age of eight and has rose from the under-9s to making his first-team debut in 2019/20.

The centre-half, who can also play at full-back, has impressed with his performances throughout his time at Wolves Academy and played a key role in the final run-in during the club’s Premier League 2 Division 2 winning campaign in 2018/19, where his thumping header against Stoke City at Molineux proved crucial.

Fresh from penning a two-year deal in the the summer of 2019, Sanderson made his bow for the first-team in a Carabao Cup tie away to Aston Villa.

Since then, the Wednesfield-born defender - who is now contracted to his boyhood club until 2025 - has impressed in a loan spell at Championship outfit Birmingham City, helping the Blues to seven clean sheets and producing consistent performances in defence, having previously gained plaudits for time at Cardiff City and Sunderland.
