- Spaniard departs after nine months in role
- O’Neil out of work after sacking by Bournemouth in June
Wolves have parted company with Julen Lopetegui after a breakdown in the relationship between club and manager, with Gary O’Neil poised to replace him days before the start of the season.
Lopetegui had been due to take training on Tuesday evening but spent the afternoon in discussions with the club’s hierarchy over terminating his contract. He signed a three-year deal last November but a financial settlement has now been agreed.
