A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Wolverhampton Wanderers has recently confirmed on their official website that Leander Dendoncker has penned a new three-year contract to extend his stay at the Molineux Stadium. It is understood that the Belgian midfield ace has put pen to paper on a three-year deal, with an option to extend his stay until the summer of 2024 (via

Dendoncker’s Impressive Form In English Football This Season

Dendoncker has established himself as one of Nuno Espirito Santo’s top performers this season as he has put in a series of dominant displays for them at the centre of the park. He has participated in 13 matches for Wolves this term but is yet to score or assist a goal for them so far.

The Belgian sensation has done to influence the game in both halves based on his average of 1.7 tackles, 0.5 interceptions, 1.2 clearances, 1.3 shots and 0.8 key passes per 90 minutes in the Premier League. The 25-year-old has even been a tidy ball-distributor after making 84.2% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

The way things have been going for Dendoncker of late, it is no surprise that he has decided to commit his long-term future to the West Midlands club. He is currently a regular starter under Nuno Espirito Santo’s tutelage and seems to be getting better with each game.

What Does The Belgian International Bring To The Table?

What makes Dendoncker such a valuable member of the Wolves starting XI is his outstanding work-ethic to produce a tireless shift for his team week in week out. Standing at 1.88m, he is a physically strong midfielder who can win some important headers for his side at both ends of the pitch.

The 12-time Belgian international is an excellent passer of the ball and even packs a lot of power with his strikes at goal. He is also a highly versatile playmaker as he primarily operates as a holding midfielder but can fill in as a centre-half if needed.

Does Dendoncker Have A Bright Future At The Molineux Stadium?

The early signs have been quite promising from Dendoncker. At 25, he is about to embark upon the prime years of his playing career, so Nuno Espirito Santo might fancy his chances of getting the best out the player in the coming seasons. He has reduced Joao Moutinho’s workload in midfield considerably and seems like he has built a solid midfield partnership with Ruben Neves at the Molineux.

All in all, there is no denying that Dendoncker is in for a very promising future at Wolves as he has got everything in his locker to become a world-class talent under the watchful eyes of Nuno Espirito Santo in the years to come.
