'We identified a number of targets' - Paul Lambert delivers major update on future at Wolves
By Will Butcher
Paul Lambert has revealed that he is to remain as manager of Wolves after meeting with the club’s owners to discuss his future.
The Guardian claimed the former Aston Villa and Norwich manager’s future was in doubt at Molineux, after holding crunch talks over his job stability at the Midlands giants.
However, Lambert revealed to Sky Sports News’ Premier League Daily Show on Thursday (10am) that he had met with Fosun International’s Jeff Shi and outlined plans for the future.
He revealed that he has discussed summer targets, as well as sorting out the club’s pre-season plans and denied that any sort of rifts or upheaval had taken place behind the scenes.
“There is no rift. I met with the president when he came over for the Chelsea game, and he is a really nice man,” Lambert said.

“Pre-season is sorted, and we identified a number of targets for the summer. Everybody wants us to look up the league and it is up to me to build a side that is able to challenge to get out the league.
“I love being at Wolves.”
Chinese group Fosun, who are an international conglomerate and investment company, took over Wolves back in July for a fee of £45million and appointed Walter Zenga as manager.
However, Zenga left in November and was replaced by Lambert, with the latter guiding the former Premier League side to Championship safety in 15th place.
There had been talk that former Celtic and Borussia Dortmund player Lambert could leave without assurances over who was to control transfers at the club.
However, Lambert now looks set to remain in charge at Molineux, and will return to pre-season training with squad on June 26.
