Stale Solbakken is relishing the chance to revive Wolves' fortunes after being appointed as their new manager.

The 44-year-old former FC Copenhagen and Cologne coach, who will replace the sacked Mick McCarthy and interim manager Terry Connor, will be aiming to restore the Black Country club to the top flight following their relegation from the Barclays Premier League after three successive seasons at the highest level.

The former Wimbledon player, who will be presented to the media on Monday, said: "I am delighted to be taking up the important challenge to manage Wolves. It's an exciting opportunity to manage a great club and I can't wait to get started."
