Dendoncker Wants European Berth

Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker says he is hopeful of gaining a place in the Europa League next season.

The Belgium international was signed in the summer from Anderlecht on a season-long loan with the club set to make the move permanent in the summer for a fee of around £12million.

After a slow start to life in the West Midlands, the 26-year-old has eventually established himself as a regular in Nuno Espirito Santo’s team and could help the promoted club finish seventh in their first season back in the Premier League since 2012.

Seventh place would be guaranteed if Leicester lose away at Manchester City on Monday evening.


Then, a place in the Europa League would also be made certain if Watford fail to beat City in the FA Cup final.

And, Dendoncker, a veteran of the competition with Anderlecht, says he would love to have another go at playing in Europe with Wolves. “I loved playing in this competition and it would mean a lot to help Wolves get there,” he told the Express and Star. “For our first season in the Premier League, to finish seventh would be a nice accomplishment. “It’s been very nice.

As a team we have had some ups and downs – but especially ups. “There have been so many nice moments and Saturday (a 1-0 win against Fulham) was another one of those special moments. Overall we can be very happy.”
