Leander Dendoncker has apparently now joined up with his Wolverhampton Wanderers teammates.

The Belgian was given some time off after featuring for Belgium at Euro 2020.

Roberto Martinez’s side reached the quarter-final stage, losing to eventual winners Italy.

Some had wondered when the 26-year-old was going to return.

It is unclear why he did not come back at the same time as Nelson Semedo, Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves.

The trio were knocked out with Portugal at the last 16 stage.

But journalist Tim Spiers has said on Twitter than Dendoncker has now gone to Marbella.

It is possible he will feature in the club’s next game against Las Palmas.

The kick-off time for that match has now moved from 9.30am to 6pm.

 

Wolves will actually stay at their Marbella camp for a couple more days longer than originally planned.

But they’ll be back by the weekend for games against Stoke City on Saturday and then Coventry City on Sunday.

Dendoncker needs to make a big impression

Dendoncker is one of a few players that left a lot to be desired last term.

The £12 million signing from Anderlecht (talkSPORT) struggled for consistency, and perhaps suffered as a result of playing in midfield and defence.

Maybe there was simply a disruption to his rhythm in 2020/21, and hopefully Bruno Lage will determine the role he’s most effective in.

He’s shown in the past he can be a really solid player.

At the moment his position as a regular starter may be under threat, and he needs to make a statement in the remaining pre-season games.
