Wolves have been unable to convince Julen Lopetegui to become their new manager, despite him being shown the door by Sevilla.

Family reasons, namely that he wanted to be close to his elderly father, have seen Lopetegui decide to stay in Spain for now, and that means he’s had to say no to the Premier League club.

That’s left Wolves looking at other options, and one of the earliest names linked to the vacancy has now returned to the picture.

Portugal’s Mais Futebol report Pedro Martins is in ‘advanced negotiations’ with the English club, and whilst there isn’t anything signed at this moment in time, it’s though an agreement is ‘well on the way’.

According to Mais Futebol, ‘everything points to’ an understanding being found between the parties, and there’s clearly optimism this move could happen.

Pedro Martins recently rejected the opportunity to take over at Hull City, which looks a good decision if he now gets the chance to manage Wolves in the Premier League.
