Championship Wolves boss Stale Solbakken has appointed German coach Patrick Weiser. The 40 year old was part of Solbakken's backroom staff last season with Cologne, with whom he started his 16-year playing career.

"After assessing various candidates, Stale and the club have decided that Patrick is the best man to fill the coaching vacancy and we are delighted to welcome him to Molineux," said Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey.

"He will bring in further fresh ideas and expertise to our backroom staff and aim to help the players build on an encouraging start to the season."
