Wolves have confirmed the departure of manager Paul Lambert.

The 47-year-old, who is a contender for the vacant post at Sunderland, was at loggerheads with the Midlands outfit over the role of super agent Jorge Mendes in the club's recruitment.

Wolves are expected to name former Valencia and Porto boss Nuno as his replacement.

Lambert's backroom team, including first team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, as well as Head of Sport Science Tom Daley, will also leave the club.

Lambert is a 33/1 outside shot with the bookies for the post at the Stadium of Light, but he is understood to be a contender. His Championship experience appeals and so too does the fact that he is now no longer in post at another club.

The former Aston Villa, Blackburn and Norwich boss is also the second favourite to replace Marco Silva at Hull City.

He spent just six months at Molineux, the same time he spent at Ewood Park with Blackburn.
