Wolves have announced the appointment of Paul Lambert as the club's new Head Coach.

Lambert, 47, arrives at Molineux with a wealth of coaching and managerial experience, most recently in the Championship and Premier League.

"We are delighted that Paul has agreed to become our new Head Coach,” said Wolves main director Jeff Shi. “He arrives at Wolves with extensive managing experience at different levels, in recent years in the Premier League and the Championship. Myself and Kevin (Thelwell) have spent many hours with Paul during the lengthy interview process, and have been very impressed with his thoughts on football and his vision for Wolves."

“We strongly believe Paul is the key and long-term leader of Wolves to achieve our goals together with the team."

Lambert’s managerial career has progressed from starting out with Livingston, Wycombe Wanderers and Colchester to then guiding Norwich from League One to the Premier League in successive seasons.

Having masterminded a 12th placed finish for the Canaries in the top division, he moved to Aston Villa, where he managed for almost another three years in the Premier League. He spent most of last season in the Sky Bet Championship with Blackburn Rovers, before exercising a clause in his contract to move on at the end of last season.
