Wolverhampton Wanderers have appointed Scott Sellars to the role of technical director.

Sellars was the head of the club's academy but now replaces Kevin Thelwell, who left the club in February last year.

In the summer, Sellars became the club's 'general manager of football technical' and extended his seven-year association with the club having arrived at Molineux in 2014.

Sellars, whose playing career took in spells at Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers, joined Wolves from Manchester City after a five-year spell with Etihad Stadium side and he also spent time as Chesterfield's assistant manager a couple of decades ago.

He was Wolves ' Under-23s manager from 2014-2018 and in 2019 became the club's academy manager.

Commenting on the appointment, executive chairman Jeff Shi said: "Scott has been at Wolves for many years, in many different and integral roles, and has a deep understanding of the club, our values and ambitions.

"Scott's job is to support me, and to support Nuno, together with Matt Wild, whilst managing the technical aspects of our football departments, as well as retaining overall responsibility for our Academy.

"The change in title will not mean any changes to the way we work, the process of decision making, or the roles of his colleagues, as Scott has already been working as part of the core leadership team for some time. Nuno, Matt and I all know Scott well and already have a good working relationship among us.

"I think it's a proper reward for his long-term contribution to Wolves and I look forward to more to come from him in the future.

"At Wolves it's always about teamwork - building a stronger management team with chemistry is one of my key jobs."

Sellars becomes Wolves' replacement for Thelwell, who is now with MLS side New York Red Bulls.
