Wolves are hopeful of signing Belgium international Leander Dendoncker in another big money move, the Express & Star understands.

The 23-year-old Anderlecht defensive midfielder – who can also play in central defence – could be on his way in a deal thought to be worth around £12million according to reports in Belgium.

Sources have confirmed Wolves' interest and he fits the bill in terms of covering two positions that Wolves are short in.

Dendoncker has won six caps for Belgium and featured in the World Cup in Russia, playing 90 minutes against England in the group game that Belgium won 1-0.

The player has played 171 times for Anderlecht and has Champions League experience.

He has been courted by some of Europe's top clubs with Manchester United among those said to be watching him earlier this year.

Wolves are set to bring in 'at least one' new signing before Thursday's 5pm deadline.

They harbour hopes of signing Manchester City's Ukrainian international Oleksandr Zinchenko in a £16m deal with the player set to decide if he wants to leave the Premier League champions.
