Leander Dendoncker hasn’t had the best of times since swapping Anderlecht for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer on a loan spell, but having started the FA Cup victory over Liverpool earlier this week, the 23-year-old has now made five appearances for us in the season of 2018/19.

With the Belgian international needing to work on his fitness apparently following his arrival, he has been very impressive in the eyes of fans when given a chance by head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, and his performance against Liverpool at the Molineux was no different.

His last three appearances for the side have seen us take victories over Tottenham, and Chelsea prior to that as well.

With his future in some doubt owing to the lack of game time, his agent, brother Andres Dendoncker, is certainly open to a loan move during the January transfer window but as he told outlet any decision would be ‘mutual’ with Wolves themselves.

“We are in the window, there is nothing decided. We have to understand a few things. On Monday, Leander played the whole match and it went well. Now we should see how things are with Wolves and then we will decide by mutual agreement. Monchi? For now, no contact, go on loan? It’s a solution if the club wants it.”

AS Roma are obviously linked as a potential destination, as is a return to Anderlecht given the loan nature of his deal but sporting director Kevin Thelwell has previously said his deal automatically turns permanent at the end of the season.
