Wolverhampton Wanderers summer spending is set to continue right up to tomorrow’s transfer deadline reports the BBC.

The latest signing is Leander Dendoncker, who will undergo a medical before completing a £12m move from the deposed Belgian champions. Time is tight; the deadline for English clubs to buy players closes tomorrow at 5 pm.

A move to West Ham fell through earlier this year when the Hammers failed to reach agreement over a £18m deal. Wolves, the Championship champions, are the latest in a long list of English clubs to show an interest in the midfielder.

With six signings already, Wolves are determined to exploit their relationship with super-agent Jorge Mendes. Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho, Jonny Castro, Otto, and Raul Jiminez, all made an unlikely journey to the Black Country, although Adama Traore’s trip from Middlesbrough was considerably shorter.

Dendocker, 23, spent nearly a decade with the Purple & Whites after joining as a youngster in 2009. 171 appearances later, he is set to leave Brussels. During his time with Anderlecht, he won six caps for the Belgium national team.

This summer, he travelled to the World Cup finals as a member of Roberto Martinez’s squad, appearing in the 1 – 0 win over England in the group stage.
