Ex-Porto boss Nuno Espirito Santo will replace Paul Lambert at Wolves
The 43-year-old is expected to be appointed the club’s fourth manager in 10 months in the next 48 hours.
Lambert left just six months after joining, following a club review of football operations which took place at the end of the season.
The Scot had only joined in November but was unhappy at Wolves’ stance on new signings with super agent Jorge Mendes, a close associate of owners Fosun, having a large say in deals.
Espirito Santo is in line to replace him at Molineux after leaving Porto earlier this month halfway through a two-year deal.

The Portuguese giants finished second in the Primeira Liga, six points behind Benfica, and finished trophyless for a fourth consecutive season.
Espirito Santo was also in charge of Valencia between 2014 and 2015 and guided them to fourth in La Liga in his only full season in charge.
Lambert became the third head coach to leave Molineux, following Kenny Jackett and Walter Zenga, since owners Fosun bought the club last July.
First team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, and head of sport science Tony Daley, have also left.
