How will Wolves get the best out of summer signing Leander Dendoncker this season?

Wolverhampton Wanderers completed some impressive business in the summer transfer window and one of the most eye-catching deals was the loan signing of Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.

The 23-year-old is a versatile ace that has shown he can play in both midfield and defence to a high level, which begs the question of how manager Nuno Espirito Santo will fit him into the side?

Nuno has revealed the Belgian will not be in contention for the clash against Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend, but moving forward he could have a serious selection headache.

Wolves commenced the new season with a midfield combination of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves in the centre of the park, with the Portuguese duo showing moments of quality.

They could cement that partnership in the weeks to come, which is why supporters may not see much of Dendoncker as a defensive midfielder.

However, he has played plenty of games at centre-back for Anderlecht and also represented his nation Belgium in that position.

Wolves three-man defence could be the perfect system to slot in their new signing, as he is comfortable in possession and can pick a piss.

Dendoncker could well feature as the right-sided defender alongside Conor Coady and Willy Boly, but that would mean leaving out the fairly consistent Ryan Bennett.

The flexibility of Dendoncker is a big part of his appeal as a Wolves signing, but it will be interesting to see how he fits into the current XI on a regular basis.
