Ethan Reid Ebanks-Landell (born 12 December 1992) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Career[edit]

Ebanks-Landell is a product of Wolverhampton Wanderers' academy, who joined aged nine; he signed his first professional contract with the club in 2010.[2] His first involvement with the first team occurred in December 2010 when he was an unused substitute for a Premier League win against Birmingham.[3]

In November 2012, the defender moved on loan to League One team Bury until 3 January 2013.[4] Here, he made his professional debut on 17 November 2012 in a 0–2 defeat at Colchester,[5] the first of eight appearances for the club. While at Bury, Ebanks-Landell established himself in the first team at Bury, playing in the centre-back position, though he would play in a different position and earning praise from manager Kevin Blackwell.[6][7] Financial troubles though meant that Bury were forced to return their loan signings in January 2013,[8][9] however, Ebanks-Landell was soon permitted to rejoin Bury on 10 January 2013 initially on loan for another month,[10] making his return to their first team two days later, in a 1–1 draw against MK Dons.[11] His loan spell was subsequently extended in February to run until the end of the season as the team unsuccessfully fought to avoid relegation to League Two.[12]

On 6 August 2013, Ebanks-Landell finally made his Wolves debut when he started a League Cup defeat at Morecambe.[13] His first league appearance for the club came on 26 October 2013 when he came on as a substitute in a 2–1 victory at Bradford.[14] On 16 November 2013 he scored his first senior goal, when he netted the only goal of the game against Notts County.[15] He scored a second goal – against Leyton Orient[16] – before suffering damage to his knee ligaments in a game at Tranmere on New Years Day 2014.[17]

He is signed to Wolves until summer 2016.[18]
