Wolves have officially confirmed their deadline day capture of Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.
Dendoncker has arrived at Molineux on an initial season-long loan deal, which will be made permanent next summer.

The Belgian was named in Roberto Martinez’ World Cup squad for this summer’s tournament, and played in the group stage fixture against England.

Many will be expecting the midfielder to reach his full potential in England, and the 23-year-old certainly has the quality to have an impact in the Premier League. A series of strong seasons in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League suggest he is now ready to make the step up.
Wolves look to have bought well so far this summer, with the likes of Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore, amongst others, having swelled the ranks already at Nuno Espirito Santo’s disposal.
Wolves fans are certainly excited by this latest addition to their squad, and many have taken to Twitter to welcome Dendoncker to the club…
Shows how ambitious Wolves are and how far they've come when you read ManUtd would have had to pay £25m-£30m for Dendoncker when he was offered to them in January. #WWFC
