Wolves sign Leander Dendoncker on initial loan from Anderlecht

Wolverhampton Wanderers have continued their summer spending hours before the Premier League transfer deadline by finalising a loan with Anderlecht for midfielder Leander Dendoncker.

Dendoncker, 23, will move to the club next summer on a permanent deal. He is the sixth signing for Wolves and will be available to make his debut in the club's opener against Everton on Saturday.

"I followed [Wolves] a little bit last year," he told Wolves TV. "I saw that they did really good. I think they took 99 points and won a lot of games, and also, [they played] attractive football. I think it's an ambitious club and that's what attracted me the most, so I'm ready to give everything."

Having won six caps for Belgium since his international debut in July 2015, Dendoncker was included in the World Cup squad and made his only appearance when he started the group-stage win over England.

Dendoncker made 190 first-team appearances for Anderlecht since breaking into the first team in the Belgian Super Cup in July 2013.
