As predicted by Vital Wolves Ståle Solbakken is to be officially announced as the new permanent manager of Wolves later today.
The 44-year-old has won five league titles in Denmark with Copenhagen, winning the Danish Superliga in 2005-06, 2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11, he also won the Danish Cup in 2009.
His record earned him a move to Bundesliga side FC Köln, but after just one year in charge he lost his job and is set to join Wolves on July 1st as a free agent.
'I am delighted to be taking up the important challenge to manage Wolves.' he told the BBC.
Wolves Chief Executive Jez Moxey confirmed the appointment on Wolves Official Website: "Following talks with Ståle Solbakken I am happy to confirm that he has agreed to become our new manager. He will be formally introduced to the media on Monday."
A press conference will be held later, where the appointment will be made official.
Vital Wolves Comment: His lack of knowledge in the English game is the main worry about this appointment.
He has been here before, but a brief stint with Wimbledon, doesn't really cut it when you are expected to lead a team back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Personally I see this as a gamble and dare I say it, perhaps a cheap option?
But after making some money on Terry Connor being announced as manager, its nice to make the same trip again to collect my winnings this afternoon as I backed him earlier this week!
