Wolves have made their second signing in as many days with the recruitment of Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

The 23-year-old midfielder, who can also play in defence, has joined the club initially on a season-long loan but the move will become permanent next summer.

Dendoncker's arrival follows that of winger Adama Traore, who joined Wolves from Middlesbrough on Wednesday, and could make his debut against Everton on Saturday.

Dendoncker had spent his whole senior career with Anderlecht, making 190 appearances for the Belgian side following his debut in 2013.

He scored five goals during Anderlecht's title-winning campaign in 2016-17 and also played in all 16 of their European games that season, which ended with defeat to Manchester United in the Europa League.

Dendoncker has won six caps for Belgium and was a member of the squad that finished third at the World Cup this summer, with his one appearance coming in the group stage victory over England.
