Cathro was on Steve McClaren's coaching team during his disastrous spell in charge at St James's Park.

The 31-year-old stayed on under Rafa Benitez, but was allowed to leave to take over as manager at Heart of Midlothian.

Cathro was sacked from his post at Tynecastle last August, and he has been reunited with Nuno Espirito Santon at Premier League newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The pair previously worked together at Valencia and Rio Ave.

"I am very excited about joining Wolves and looking forward to working with a coach and staff I know, trust and believe in," said Cathro.

"All of us share the same footballing philosophy and that is such an important factor for a successful coaching team. Wolves are a fantastic club with a rich history and lots of potential, and I can't wait to get started."

Meanwhile, former United goalkeeper Shay Given has joined Frank Lampard's coaching team at Derby County.
