Wolves have held talks with Bruno Lage as they search for Nuno Espirito Santoโ€™s replacement.

Former Benfica boss Lage has met with the club but is not the only candidate, the PA news agency understands.

Lage, 45, left Benfica last summer having taken the club to the Primeira Liga title in 2019.

He also worked as assistant to Carlos Carvalhal at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea.

Wolves are looking for Nunoโ€™s successor after he left the club at the end of the Premier League season.

While it was by mutual consent, owners Fosun were the driving force behind the decision.

Nuno only signed a three-year contract extension in September, with the news of his exit coming as a surprise.

He held talks with the club last week over his future and, despite a disappointing season which saw Wolves finish 13th in the Premier League, the decision was not based on results this term.

Fosun had been considering a change in regards to the clubโ€™s wider progress, with the owners wanting to make a proactive and decisive choice.
