Ethan Ebanks-Landell looks certain to move on from Wolves

Nuno Espirito Santo, the Wolves manager looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Millwall and Wolverhampton at The Den on December 26, 2017 in London, England.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell left the Championship and Wolverhamton Wanderers last summer for more regular football in League One with MK Dons.

If Ethan Ebanks-Landell was harbouring hopes of a future at Wolverhampton Wanderers, his claims have not been helped by a fairly dreadful loan spell at MK Dons this season.

The 25-year-old centre-back shone in League One for Sheffield United in 2016/17, netting five goals from centre-back as The Blades cruised to the third tier title and won over 100 points to boot. But Ebanks-Landell has not had anywhere near the same impact at MK Dons.

The Dons are used to fighting for promotion at this level but, with just a few weeks left in the season, are just two points above the drop zone and there are genuine fears that they could drop into League Two.

And Ebanks-Landell has found himself subjected to criticism almost throughout the campaign. Fans took to Twitter in February to lambast the Wolves loanee for his performances, some even pointing out that MK Dons’ defence looks far weaker with Ebanks-Landell on the pitch.

And the 6ft 2ins powerhouse hardly endeared himself to the Stadium MK faithful during the humiliating 5-1 thrashing at Wigan Athletic on Saturday – especially when he diverted a header into his own net to give The Latics a two goal lead just 24 minutes in.

Wolves are expected to spend big in the summer while getting rid of a couple of players clearly not Premier League level. So it would be no surprise if Ebanks-Landell moved on.
