There has been a lot of change over the past few days at Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Nuno Espirito Santo replacing Paul Lambert as manager of the football club.

Not just that, but a number of the backroom staff were let go, with new replacements coming in today.

And they are not the only new arrivals at Molineux. Wolverhampton Wanderers today confirmed on their website that they had completed the signing of Ryan Bennett, who will join on a free on July 1.

Bennett’s contract at fellow Sky Bet Championship side Norwich City expired at the end of the season, and the Canaries have chosen not to renew his contract.

But Bennett will be remaining in the second tier of English football, joining Wolves on a three year deal.

Speaking about the move, the former Norwich City and Peterborough United defender told the club’s official website: “You speak to people and this club’s stood out with the ambition and the way they’re going to move forward.

“That’s what stood out to me and it’s something that I want to be part of. I’m not going to sit here and lie about it. That’s the reason I’ve come here, I don’t want to sit and play in the Championship really.”

“That’s what we’re going to try and do, we’re going to try and get promoted from the Championship this year.

Wolves’ Sporting director Kevin Thelwell also commented on the signing.

“He’s a player we’ve known for a long time, and he has got a lot of experience,” Thelwell said.

“We know him as a good guy and we think he will add real value to the football club.”
