​Wolves in search of new boss as Lambert leaves

Championship Wolves head coach Paul Lambert has left the club after seven months in charge.

The Championship club will make an announcement "in due course" on a new head coach and backroom team.

Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo, who has left his post at Porto, is his anticipated replacement.

As well as Lambert, coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, their former player, and another ex-player Tony Daley, fitness coach and head of sport science, are also leaving.

Lambert is the fifth of Wolves' past six first-team bosses to last less than a year at Molineux.

His role had been in doubt since the end of the Championship season over a dispute about who has the final say on signing players.

The decision was made as part of a coaching restructure by Wolves' Chinese owners Fosun following an end-of-season football review.
