KENNY Jackett's appointment as the new Wolves head coach has been officially confirmed by the League One club.

NewsAtDen revealed yesterday that the Molineux side had offered Jackett the job and the 51-year-old has duly accepted the position after the two clubs agreed a compensation fee.

The former Millwall boss, who resigned at The Den earlier this month, said: "I am both proud and delighted to have been appointed head coach at Wolves, and am really looking forward to the challenge ahead."

The Lions have released a statement to confirm they have received compensation from Wolves and to "wish him the best of luck in his new position."

    Now we've got the money to buy out the contract of whoever we've been waiting weeks for....or not as the case may be.

    OK Kenny now you've inherited all that money at least £23m I believe, you must surely have a conscience to adopt an unwanted footballer. There are a few around and a prime example is Dany N'Guessan---You know the one you felt so sorry for when you were at Millwall that you opted to give him very generously a three year contract---Please take him and as John Marquis might feel lonely as well, it might be nice of you as a respected man inside the game to give both of these a new home---I am sure you will feel the benefit of your kind gesture and they won't let you down

        You have seen it. It went on signing on fees, agent fees, exorbitant weekly salaries for Hulse, Tyson and Woolnough and to allow Berylson to jet off to Paris for a week.

    In true Millwall style, get ready for the message related 'Where's the Jacket money gone??????', same bottomless pit as the 'Morrison Money', and even better the 'Wood money (Never actually existed as he never belonged to us!!!!!)'. Whatever we got I bet its peanuts against the big scheme of things, so lets not expect it to be a deciding factor in the new manager search.

    Oh and well done KJ, hope we stuff you at the Den mate!

    No bitterness from me Kenny, I wish you well fella. Gave us more success and Wembley appearances than we probably deserved. Gave us old long serving and long suffering fans a bit to cheer about and a good steady and stable 6 years. My personal thanks, Iam still gutted you left but I think I understand why the time was right to do it. Good luck KJ, except for the games against us, that is. Good memories, thankyou.

    Finally, Wolves show a bit of common sense. KJ is the perfect man to get them out of League One at the first attempt and establish them as serious contenders for a return to the Premier League.
    He may have stepped down a League, but with their crowds and parachute payments he's got the money to spend that his hard work and integrity deserve!!!

    I asked Luke that yesterday.
    He perceived that Jackett was on 10-20k a week. So, as he was contracted for another year minus the weeks he's been on gardening leave it would be close to 500k to a million. Millwall, no doubt took less than that. Will Watford accept that for Dyche one wonders and is he the mystery man ?

      @NICKOLA: no I didn't, I said I believe him to be on no more than 10k a week as that would amount to just over 500k a yr. I then said Alex has said KJs compensation is about the same as Dyche's which is about 1m in which case if soley based on salery then that's a little under 20k a week which I believe is too high.
      I reckon his salary is between 350-500k a yr

    For all the conspiracy thoerists,I've just read Aldos last statement on Babbel again. It says a 'source' close to him came across with all that holiday stuff and compo etc. It also says he didn't know if MFC might try and contact him again.
    Could it still be on? Any comment Mr Aldridge?

    When Kenny resigned, I personally said that Karl Robinson was the most likely appointment, looks more likely every day.

    I still think there's someone from overseas that they haven't interviewed yet and that has to be Babbel. I'm also of the opinion that Dyche might still be under consideration with an approach delayed until the compensation for Jackett was finalised. That is the only reason I can think of as to why the interviews are apparently continuing into next week. If it was down to the original shortlist in England they would have had the 2nd interviews by now and would have made a decision.

      @NICKOLA: was saying almost exactly the same thing to a mate this morning nick. I also think it could still be Babbel and that we were waiting to clear up all the legal stuff with jacket.
      Back to Babbel the club did say they were doing a couple interviews in Paris I reckon one had to be with Hoffenheim to find out what his compensation is and what other legalities are, if not him then what British manager? Mcleish is the only one whos openly said he's interested in the job and I'm more than sure he knows enough about us to warrant the job as the club keep saying.
      Well we'll soon find out

    Been following Alex Rae on Twitter since KJ left. From comments made I think you can rule him out, unless he's double bluffing....lol Paul Clement is the mover with the bookies today. After Denslions comment yesterday and some further research I had a tickle at 28's this morning and have just looked back and he is best priced 7/1 and as low as 5's.

    Have seen quite a few places now mentioning Paul Clement and I thought. ' oh god, not another one, here we go again,' but I've been reading his history and profile in some depth, and this guy is mustard. Did his coaching badges years ago, at same time as AVB and Brendan Rodgers. His old man was England international Dave Clement (QPR). Has worked with PSG with their coaching staff, Ancillotti, Beckham, etc and at Chelsea with Gus Hiddink. Got lots of experiences a WINNER. JB interviewed in Paris as guy above has stated? Interesting development, or another slippery turd of a non story?

        @NICKOLA: You are most welcome NICKOLA. Whilst I do understand this is just Internet rumour and also the very very best coaches (behind the scenes) don't necessarily become the best managers or the face of a club, his profile does certainly suggest he hasn't been wasting his time just polishing boots and replacing broken studs. If we're gonna have a 'nobody' (no disrespect intended to the fella), then he'll be highly qualified, won't he? Good luck to him, a London boy too apparently.

          @Marshlion: Worked in the Chelsea youth set up with Jose for a few years as well and as Jose looks like he's going back he might have a squeak at loaning some Chelsea young talent. Most interesting name I've seen so far.

      @glyngo: Glyngo, very interesting read that is. I read Lukesmithmfc point above that Clement may rather have the assistant position at Real or PSG than Manager at Millwall, but then again, would he be better to serve his proper 'apprenticeship' at the Den under the spotlight. Make no mistake, all and sundry see you ply your trade as a manager in this country, nothing goes unnoticed. This could be a perfect way for clement to get 4 or 5 years in with us to cut his teeth in real management. Just think of Owen Hargreaves, who was playing outstanding football abroad but went largely forgotten in the UK because he was out of the spotlight. My case in point is the very same Paul Clement, doing a sterling job at PSG, one of the biggest clubs in Europe, but we've all had to Google him cos he's not been doing anything here. So the championship could well be his idea of a start on the road to his dream of managing a big Prem club.

        @Marshlion: yep, i agree. The Championship is an internationally recognised league and the chance to management in it does not come along often. Every aspurubg coach wants the chance to be a number 1.

    Sounds like its the third man who they really want.

    I personally fell Kenny decided to go after he couldn't keep Wood. he turn us around and got us promoted. then it takes time to get rid of the players not good enough for the championship. When he put Wood in he got a winning team. Even though we are lead to believe everything was done to keep him, Kenny knew then that he couldn't do anything else for us. He just went though the rest of the season waiting to leave.
    Still thanks Kenny good luck I putting a pony on Wolves next year
