The Midlands-based side have been relegated from the Premier League this season after a year of uncertainty. Mick McCarthy was fired earlier this year and was replaced temporarily by Terry Connor. Now, the club has a clear future ahead of the summer break by appointing a permanent coach.

Ståle Solbakken’s CV shows he is a proven winner. The 44-year-old has won five Danish league titles with FC Copenhagen but recently was sacked at German side Cologne after the side were relegated to second tier.

He has had experience in the Premier League by playing for Wimbledon between 1997 and 98 but his career was halted after suffering from a cardiac arrest in 2001.

The Norwegian will be watching from the stands when Wolves play Wigan Athletic in the side’s last game in the top English league. Their Chairman, Steve Morgan has promised a lot of money would be efficiently spent in the summer transfer window.

A source close to the Norwegian says, “He is very keen to test himself in England and he has been assured there will be financial backing to build a team capable of getting back into the Premier League.”
