Exclusive: Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is poised to put pen to paper on a new deal with the club before the 2020/21 Premier League season gets underway.

Nuno has enjoyed remarkable success in the Molineux hot seat since his appointment in May 2017, guiding Wolves to an emphatic promotion from the Championship during his first season in charge.

He led his side to seventh the following season - the best finish in the top flight from a newly promoted side in nearly two decades - before repeating the feat during the 2019/20 campaign while simultaneously juggling Europa League football. 

Nuno has just 12 months left to run on his current deal, and although he had always reassured Wolves that he intends to extend his stay, the Molineux top brass were beginning to get anxious as his contract ticked down.

However, 90min understands that Wolves are confident that Nuno will sign his new deal before the Premier League season begins.
