Wolves have announced the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo who will leave the club after Sunday’s game with Manchester United.

In four seasons at Molineux, Nuno led the club from the Championship to the Premier League and Europa League but is now set to depart by “mutual agreement”.

The 47-year-old said: “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.”

He is now the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur.

Yedlin becomes part-owner of US club

Former Newcastle right-back DeAndre Yedlin has become a part-owner at US side San Diego Loyal.

San Diego, who compete in the USL Championship, were founded in 2019 with the assistance of former USA international and Everton loanee Landon Donovan.

“I am very excited to be joining the San Diego Loyal ownership group,” said Yedlin.

“After speaking with Andrew (Vassiliadis), Warren (Smith) and Landon (Donovan) about the club's values, morals and goals for the future and then seeing those being put to action made it hard for me to turn down this opportunity.”
