Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker has signed a new three-year deal with the Premier League club.
The midfielder has committed his future to the Molineux club until 2023 with an option to extend for another 12 months.
Belgium international Dendoncker has played 12 times for a Wolves side sitting 13th in the Premier League.
“I’m really happy to be able to stay longer here and to extend my contract,” Dendoncker, who can also play in defence, told the club’s official site.
“It’s my third season now and until now, it has been a great journey; both for me, the club, the fans, the players, everyone.
“This is a great place to be at and to work. I’m happy off the pitch and on the pitch, So I’m really happy to be able to stay here longer.
“For the club, it’s been a great journey in the Premier League, as well as in the Europa League. Because to get to the quarter-finals is a really nice memory for the club, and it has been great until now.
“I hope we can end this season well. But we will need to keep on working hard for that, and I hope we can get there.”
The 25-year-old joined Wolves, initially on loan, from Anderlecht in 2018. The club made it permanent for around £12million a year later.
He has made 95 appearances for Wolves, scoring eight times, ahead of Tuesday’s visit of Chelsea.
Wolves chasing Man City misfit
Wolves are reportedly set to swoop for Manchester City’s forgotten defender Oleksandr Zinchenko in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old has been on the City books since 2016 but has yet to establish himself as a regular player. The Ukraine international made 14 Premier League appearances in 2018-2019.
He bettered that total last term, earning 13 starts among 19 outings for Pep Guardiola’s side. However, he is now well and truly on the peripheries, with just 12 minutes of top-flight football in 2020/2021.
He has the likes of Benjamin Mendy and Joao Cancelo ahead of him in the pecking order. Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte, primarily centre-backs, can also play on the left side of defence.
Therefore it is going to be tough for the former Shakhtar Donetsk youth star to break through. With that in mind, he may well be looking for a way out of the club in the winter window.
Wolves have already shown an interest in the player and had a £19m bid rejected two years ago. Read more…
