Portuguese tactician Bruno Lage has arrived in England ahead of his potential signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers as their new manager.
The Express & Star reports that the 45-year-old ex-Benfica manager touched down on Monday night and a club announcement could take place on Wednesday.
The manager is set to sign a deal with Wolves and return to his native Portugal with Wolves not beginning pre-season until the start of July when he is expected to return.
Lage who was granted a work permit by the FA last week will be coming in for fellow Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo who left the club last month; Santo having been linked with the vacant managerial role at Crystal Palace.
The tactician will be coming in with his own backroom team, including his younger brother Luis Nascimento.
