Rangers target Dion Sanderson is seemingly available this summer with Wolverhampton Wanderers now ‘willing to sell’ the defender.

That’s according to the Birmingham Mail, who claim that Sanderson is set to be on the move.

It’s stated that Wolves are willing to work with Sanderson to enable him to join the club of his choice.

Birmingham City will be keen as Sanderson has become a fan favourite with the Blues during his loan spell this season.

Wolves allegedly won’t demand a big fee for Sanderson and will instead facilitate an exit for a homegrown talent.

Whether that has come down from the £3million claims in January remains to be seen.

This will be of real interest to Rangers.

The Scottish Sun reported in January that Rangers had targeted a deal for Sanderson.

A summer move was always going to be easier given that Sanderson was in the middle of a loan spell.

Now seemingly ready to move on and with Wolves open to a deal, Rangers could pounce for their man this summer.

Dion Sanderson can give Michael Beale tactical flexibility at Rangers

Sanderson, 23, is a versatile defender who can play at right back and centre back.

The Wolves talent would really give Michael Beale some tactical flexibility at Rangers next season and beyond.

Beale has hinted lately that he could move to play a back three and Sanderson would be ideal for that system.

Sanderson is perfect to play the right centre back role with Ben Davies on the left and Connor Goldson in the middle of the back line.

Alternatively, Sanderson can be quality competition for both Goldson at centre back and James Tavernier at right back.

There is still so much untapped potential in Sanderson and if Wolves aren’t seeking a huge fee, Rangers should be trying to engineer a move now and get a deal done quickly.
