"I thoroughly enjoyed my time as head coach of the club and I wish everyone at Wolves the very best of luck next season and beyond", read Lambert's statement, which was released through the LMA.

Fosun began a review of all aspects of last season some weeks ago and look set to axe Lambert as a result.

Paul Lambert has wished Wolverhampton Wanderers "the very best of luck for next season and beyond" after officially leaving the Championship club on Tuesday afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal had been one of the names linked to the job in port but the has since agreed a new deal to stay at Hillsborough.

Lambert's first team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards will also be leaving the club, Wolves said, adding that details of replacements would be made "in due course".

Lambert is believed to have parted company with the second tier side following a dispute with Wolves' Chinese owners over who would have the final say on new signings.

"As part of the coaching restructure, the club are now in discussions with Pat Mountain regarding the possibility of him taking up a role within the Academy".

He raided Rovers in the January transfer window, with the signing of Ben Marshall, but despite forking out in the region of £25million on players, Wolves stuttered to a mid-table finish. Kenny Jackett was relieved of his duties days after Fosun took charge and Walter Zenga was at the helm for less than three months before being sacked.
