Leander Dendoncker certainly seemed happy as Larry when posing in the famous golden shirt of Wolverhampton Wanderers on transfer deadline day.
"It's a dream for every player to play in the Premier League. I hope I can help the team as fast as possible," the Belgian international, who cost £12 million, told Wolves TV.
"I followed Wolves a bit last year and I saw they did really good, winning a lot of games, playing good football. I think it's an ambitious club so I am ready to give everything."
But reports over in Belgium do not exactly suggest that Dendonker was overawed by the prospect of swapping Anderlecht for the Premier League newcomers. There is a real hint that the 22-year-old has chosen to move to Molineux because of an absence of so-called ‘better offers’.
HLN claimed on Thursday ahead of his move to Molineux that Dendoncker was ‘rather unhappy’. And just a week earlier, Foot Mercato even claimed that his client had turned down a move to Wolves.
"All the options he had are closing up. He refused Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton for example,” a source close to the World Cup bronze medallist told Foot Mercato.
So is there a chance that Dendoncker moved to Wolves because of a lack of other options? It seems that this is a genuine possibility. But if Nuno Espirito Santo’s side take the Premier League by storm, he could be pleasantly surprised with his new surroundings.
