And according to a report from nieuwsblad.be, West Ham have made enquiries into Dendoncker's situation with view to proceeding with a January transfer.

The 6'2" Belgian international, who his club value in the region of 30million was expected to leave Anderlecht in the summer, with clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea having previously shown interest.

But West Ham are reported to be considering a 20million opening offer in order to push the deal through now, rather than in six month's time.

Speaking about his future before the season started, Dendoncker admitted that his long term future almost certainly lay elsewhere.

"I have spoken with my agent, now we will see," he said last summer. "I am awaiting his opinion. I am focused on the national team and after we will see."
