Wolves chairman Jeff Shi told the club's official website: “Julen is a top coach, with excellent experience at an elite level of the game, and we are very pleased to have agreed a deal to bring him to Wolves.

“Since the very beginning, Julen has been our number one choice to manage Wolves, and we look forward to welcoming him and his team when they join us in the coming weeks.”

Lopetegui enjoyed a long career as a goalkeeper before moving into management.

He took charge of Porto in 2014 before being appointed as Spain coach two years later, having previously managed the national team at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels.

A short stint as Real Madrid manager followed before a three-year spell with Sevilla, where he won the UEFA Europa League in 2019/20.
