Wolverhampton Wanderers confirm the signing of Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Belgian midfielder Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old, who can also play in defence, becomes Wolves' sixth new signing of the summer following the arrivals of Adama Traore, Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho, Jonny Castro and Raul Jimenez.

The deal includes an option for Wolves to sign the player permanently next summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £13m.

Dendoncker was part of the Belgium squad that made it through to a third-place finish in this summer's World Cup and has spent five seasons as part of the senior setup at Anderlecht, making 171 appearances.

Wolves are believed to be working on at least one more signing before the transfer window closes at 5pm, with the likes of Josef de Souza, Victor Moses, Layvin Kurzawa and Andre Silva among the names linked.

Manchester City winger Oleksandr Zinchenko is believed to have turned down a deadline-day move to the Midlands, despite a fee of £16m having been agreed between the two clubs.
