Dion Sanderson does not have a January recall option at Wolves, which means that any sale to Rangers would have to be approved by his current loan club Birmingham..
The defender is a target for the Light Blues, with scout John Park recently sent to observe him. The 23-year-old has been on loan at the Blues since August, and they want to sign him permanently, which could stymie Gers’ pursuit. Birmingham do not have to let the player leave in January, according to Football Scotland, because there is no contract clause in their initial deal with his parent club that would allow him to return to Molineux.
We also understand that the Premier League club is looking for around £3 million for their versatile centre-half who can play in both positions..
With Filip Helander expected to leave the club due to a long-term injury, Michael Beale is looking for defensive cover. Gio van Bronckhorst has used James Sands and John Lundstram at the back this season, and Ben Davies has been injured since arriving at Ibrox.
Sanderson’s contract with Wolves runs until 2025, putting Julen Lopetegui’s team in a strong position..
The Sun reported this weekend that Gers sporting director Ross Wilson also observed Sanderson in action.
He has played 24 times for Birmingham this season, scoring once, and his former clubs include QPR, Sunderland, and Cardiff..
