Webber will report to recently-appointed head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell as the club continue their restructuring process.

"I am delighted that Stuart has joined the club," Wolves manager Stale Solbakken said.

"It is part of the new structure put in place with Kevin Thelwell and is an important appointment which will benefit us in the transfer market both at home and abroad."

Webber has previously worked with Wrexham, Liverpool and QPR and he is delighted to be at Molineux.

"It all happened quite quickly but I'm excited to be here and really looking forward to the challenge," he said.

"With Kevin's change of role and the club looking to go in a slightly different direction it is a good opportunity and an exciting one, although there is a lot of work to do.

"The guys that have left did a very good job but now we have to put our own stamp on it and take things forward.

"We need to have a good network of scouts in operation not only in England but also further afield and we need to bring the department up to speed with modern day football.

"There are so many more resources available now than there has ever been and it is about utilising those to get the best for this club.

"That means identifying good players at good value to help the club develop and get back to where we want to be which is ultimately the Premier League."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
