Former Millwall manager Kenny Jackett is widely expected to take the reins at Molineux within the next 48 hours, according to The Telegraph.

Jackett resigned from Millwall earlier this month, in search of a new challenge following a six-year stint with The Lions.

At the time of his departure, he was the longest-serving manager in the Championship having led his team to promotion in 2010. 

Forced into early retirement from his playing career in 1990, Jackett also had managerial spells at Watford and Swansea respectively.

This news follows Dean Saunders’ sacking at Wolves after they were relegated to League One. 

It is believed that the likes of Owen Coyle, Steve Davis and Uwe Rosler were all interviewed though 51-year-old Jackett is the club’s preferred candidate following final talks with chairman Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey.

It is hoped that Jackett’s swift return to management will provide Wolves with a new sense of direction, following successive relegations to the Championship in 2012 and League One this year.
