BRUNO LAGE is the early front-runner to replace outgoing Nuno Espirito Santo.

Wolves announced Nuno’s departure ahead of their final game of the season.


And his fellow Portuguese Lage is the most likely replacement.

Lage left Benfica last year and has already coached in England working at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea as an assistant.

Paulo Fonseca is also in the mix along with Rafa Benitez and Scott Parker. Steven Gerrard is also 25/1.

On his departure from Wolves, Nuno said: said: “Since the first day we arrived at Compton, our ambition was to make a positive change and push this football club forward, and I am proud to say that we did that every single day.

“We achieved our goals, we did it with passion and we did it together.

“Firstly, I want to thank the supporters, who have all played such an important part in helping us reach new heights for Wolves, and the people of the city, who embraced us and made us feel at home.

“I, of course, want to thank all of the staff at Wolves, for their support and total commitment, every single day.

“Most importantly, I want to thank each-and-every player that we’ve worked with since the day we started, for their loyalty, their dedication, hard work and talent.

“They are the ones who have made this amazing journey possible for us.

“Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack.”
