Supporters of Wolverhampton Wanderers have been reacting to reported transfer interest in Dion Sanderson from Midlands rivals Aston Villa.
According to Football Insider, the Villans are currently keeping their eye on the youngster, who is on loan at Cardiff City, with a view to taking him on loan next season (via Talking Wolves), which some fans were desperate not to see happen.
Aston Villa are plotting a summer raid for Wolves defender Dion Sanderson who is currently on loan at Cardiff City.

But he’s already on loan at a championship team?

No way you’d betray us @SandowRs lad, anyone but Villa or WBA but personally feel you deserve a stint in our team

NNNNOOOOOOOOO, Dion’s a cracking lad, he doesn’t deserve that. ?

Would you be willing to see Dion Sanderson move to Aston Villa on loan next season?
Yes, would be good for development
No, he can go to anyone but them
During the January transfer window, the 20-year-old defender moved to the Bluebirds on loan for the remainder of the season (as per BBC).
Since his switch from Molineux to the Cardiff City Stadium, Sanderson has featured in three Championship games, during which he has bagged one assist (per Transfermarkt).
However, while some supporters were desperate to not see the defender make a loan move to their Midlands rivals, others were more open to the possibility of the loan switch.
No option to buy and I’ll take it. Lad looks class. 100% one for the future

What do we think?
Despite only having made three appearances for Cardiff in the Championship, Sanderson has a 7.18/10 average match rating (as per WhoScored), showing the youngster clearly has talent.
While supporters were divided over the potential loan move to a rival, if the 20-year-old will not be getting minutes at Molineux next season, a loan move to Villa either in the Premier League or Championship could be best for the defender’s development.
