Benfica boss Bruno Lage has been given the green light to sign a contract by Wolves by the English FA.
Lage's managerial record initially failed to pass post-Brexit regulations but according to the BBC, Wolves put their case forward at a hearing on Wednesday and he has now been given permission to join the club.
Wolves are currently looking for a manager after the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo at the end of the 2020/21 season with Lage having been selected as the preferred candidate to replace his fellow Portuguese.
Lage guided Benfica to the league title in 2019 with that squad having the likes of Ruben Dias who is now at Manchester City; his team scoring over 100 goals that season.
The 45-year-old was however dismissed in June 2020 by the Portuguese giants but Wolves is said to have selected him due to his experience in English football where he Carlos Carvalhal's assistant at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea.
Bruno Lage is the ‘frontrunner’ and first option as Wolves new manager since May 21, the day Nuno was sacked. Work permit still pending - if it’s conceded, Bruno Lage will sign as new Wolves head coach. 🐺🟠 #Wolves https://t.co/VyVFSfOM1W— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 1, 2021
