Speaking to the BBC, Paul Lambert has insisted his next step in management is likely to be in England following his departure from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but refused to rule out a move abroad.  

After just seven months in-charge of Wolves, a spell that saw Lambert guide the club to 15th in the Sky Bet Championship, the Molineux club opted to part company with the Scot.

It appeared that Lambert had found Jorge Mendes’ influence at Molineux difficult to cope with, as the football agent’s role in transfers continues to grow in Wolverhampton.

Nuno Espirito Santo has since replaced Lambert, and the 47-year old is now considering his next move, but he expects that to be in England or abroad, with a move back to Scotland unlikely, he said: “There’s one or two things that I’m mulling over in my head at the minute.

“I’m never adverse to anything but I think I would rather stay in England or I’d go abroad.”

Despite failing to inspire during his time with Wolves, Lambert does have an excellent pedigree in English football, having managed throughout the Football League.

Lambert masterminded Norwich City’s back-to-back promotions, helping the Canaries out of League One and into the Championship in 2010, before taking the club into the Premier League just 12-months later.

Having established Norwich in the top-flight, Lambert had a spell with Aston Villa in the Premier League, before returning to the Championship with Blackburn Rovers.

Following his departure from Wolves, Lambert has been linked with the vacant Sunderland job, but is currently priced at 14/1 with SkyBet for the job.
