Tim Nash, a former Wolves correspondent for the Express & Star has claimed on his personal Twitter account that the 47-year-old has been appointed boss of the Championship club.

Additionally, leading bookmakers’ have stopped taking bets on the promotion winning manager taking over the reigns at Molineux.

He left the club, with only four wins in 14 league games, as journalist Nash has now claimed, Wolves have found a replacement.

“Hearing Paul Lambert has been named as Wolves new manager,” Nash wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Former Premier League boss Lambert has been out-of-work, since leaving Blackburn Rovers in the summer, due to his frustrations with the Ewood Park owners.

Lambert, who was a well accomplished midfielder during his playing days, was sacked by Villa in February 2015, leaving the club with only 25 wins from his 101 games in charge.

The Scotsman, has won promotion during his managerial career, most notably, back-to-back promotions with Norwich City.
