Wolves Sign Belgium International On Season-Long Loan Deal With Option To Buy

Anderlecht and Belgium international Leander Dendoncker has become Wolves latest signing
Anderlecht and Belgium international Leander Dendoncker has become Wolves latest signing

In some of the most surprising news of the transfer window, Wolverhampton Wanderers have brought someone to Molineux who isn’t Portuguese.

The midfielder Leander Dendoncker has become manager Nuno Espírito Santo latest acquisition, subject to a medical taking place today, with the deal set to be sewn up by the 5pm transfer deadline.

Dendoncker is a Belgian international who most recently competed in the World Cup in Russia. With the Belgium national team, Dendoncker achieved an admirable third place position.

Initially moving on a season-long loan deal from Anderlecht with the option of purchase next year, Dendoncker is a vastly underrated talent, operating primarily as a defensive midfielder but capable of playing in the centre of defence.

If his time in the Premier League proves as successful as Santo obviously hopes, the 23 year-old is speculated to be being purchased for around €13.5million from Belgian First Division A side Anderlecht. It is yet another exciting signing for the aspiring Midlands club

Most will remember him from England’s final group game, in which both English and Belgian sides fielded weakened teams as they prepared for for the knock-out stages of the competition.

Dendocker has managed over 170 appearances with Anderlecht since joining the youth system in 2009, with a return of 11 goals and four assists, and has subsequently earned six caps for country.

He joins such titillating transfers to arrive at Wolves as the goalkeeper Rui Patricio from Sporting CP, Diogo Jota from Atlético Madrid, and Joao Moutinho from 17/18 Ligue 1 runners-up AS Monaco.
