Kenny Jackett: Stepped down at Millwall earlier this month

Jackett, who stepped down as Millwall manager earlier this month after five-and-a-half years in charge, succeeds Dean Saunders at Molineux.

Saunders lost his job at the end of the season after failing to prevent the club slipping into League One with back-to-back relegations.

Jackett will face the press on Monday, but he told the Wanderers website: "I am both proud and delighted to have been appointed head coach at Wolves.

"I am really looking forward to the challenge ahead."

Wolves must pay Millwall compensation for Jackett, and a statement on the London club's website confirmed a deal has been agreed.

The statement continued: "Everybody at Millwall Football Club would once again like to thank Kenny for his fantastic contribution at The Den and wish him the best of luck in his new position."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
