Club careerEdit

Wolverhampton WanderersEdit

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]

After returning from a loan spell at Bury, Ebanks-Landell finally made his Wolves debut on 6 August 2013 when he started a League Cup defeat at Morecambe.[4] 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.[5] On 16 November 2013 he scored his first senior goal, when he netted the only goal of the game against Notts County.[6] He scored a second goal – against Leyton Orient[7] – before suffering damage to his knee ligaments in a game at Tranmere on New Years Day 2014.[8]

Bury (loan)Edit

In November 2012, the defender moved on loan to League One team Bury until 3 January 2013.[9] Here, he made his professional debut on 17 November 2012 in a 0–2 defeat at Colchester,[10] 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.[11][12] Financial troubles though meant that Bury were forced to return their loan signings in January 2013,[13][14] however, Ebanks-Landell was soon permitted to rejoin Bury on 10 January 2013 initially on loan for another month,[15] making his return to their first team two days later, in a 1–1 draw against MK Dons.[16] 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.[17]

Sheffield United (loan)Edit

On 31 August 2016, having not featured for Wolves since March, Ebanks-Landell moved on a season-long loan to League One side Sheffield United.[18]

Ebanks-Landell made his Blades debut as a substitute in the 2-1 victory at Gillingham on 4 September 2016.[19] He made his full debut in the 3-2 victory at AFC Wimbledon on 10 September 2016[20] and cemented his place with a string of commanding performances in the back three, scoring vital goals including an injury time equaliser at Fleetwood Town on 1 October 2016,[21] a double at home to Port Vale on 15 October 2016 [22] and an injury time winner at home to Bury on 22 November 2016.[23]

Ebanks-Landell played in 14 successive league games for Sheffield United before tasting his first defeat in the 1-0 home defeat to Walsall on 29 November 2016 in a game watched by Paul Lambert the new Wolves manager.[24] After much speculation over whether he would be recalled to Wolves in the January transfer window he signed a new three and a half year deal with Wolves on 9 January 2017 but was allowed to remain on loan at Sheffield United for the rest of the season.[25] Ebanks-Landell credited his teammates and staff at Sheffield United for helping him to win his new contract.[26]

Milton Keynes Dons (loan)Edit

On 14 July 2017, Ebanks-Landell joined League One side Milton Keynes Dons until the end of the 2017–18 season.[27][28]
