Biography

Leander Dendoncker brings both energy and versatility to the Wolves squad and has proved a crucial player since his arrival in 2018.

Capable of playing in either defence or midfield, the Belgian initially joined Wolves on loan, before making the move permanent and going on to make more than 150 appearances in old gold.

A regular in the Belgium squad, the midfielder is a product of the Anderlecht youth system and went on to make 190 senior appearances for the club.

After making his debut in 2013, he played on the biggest stage in the Champions League and Europa League with the Belgian side and won two Belgian Super Cups and First Division title.

Fresh from appearing at the 2018 World Cup, Dendoncker switched to Molineux, and netted his first goal in English football in a 3-1 win at Everton in February 2019.

The reliable and high energy performances have continued from the Belgian, who hit six goals across all competition in 2019/20, including two in the Europa League against Torino and Besiktas.

Under Bruno Lage, Dendoncker often provided late runs into the box and a threat from set pieces in midfield and bagged in an impressive 2-0 away success at Tottenham Hotspur in February 2022.
