BBC journalist Pat Murphy has revealed that Roy Keane, Tim Sherwood and Harry Redknapp are not being considered for the Wolves job.

The managerial trio had been rumoured to replace axe manager Walter Zenga, but are believed to be far behind favourite Paul Lambert.

Broadcaster Murphy, who covers the likes of Wolves and Aston Villa, revealed on his personal Twitter account that the three managers had not even been approached by Wolves.

Zenga was given his marching orders by the Wolves board after the Midlands giants were beaten at Molineux by Garry Monk’s Leeds, with an own goal coming in the 70th minute during the 1-0 loss.

After scoring just three goals in five games and picking up just one point, Zenga was told that his services would no longer be required as he leaves Wolves languishing above the relegation zone.

Currently looking after the team is first-team coach Rob Edwards, who saw his namesake David score Wolves’ late equaliser against Blackburn on Saturday to earn a 1-1 draw in his first game as interim boss.

Lambert, who was last in charge of Championship rivals Blackburn, is believed to be given the nod to replace Zenga as Saturday’s lunchtime clash against Derby looms.
