Cotterill takes the Portsmouth reins
Saturday 19 June 2010
Portsmouth have confirmed the appointment of Steve Cotterill as the club's new manager. The 45-year-old has signed a three-year deal at the South Coast club, who are rebuilding after suffering relegation from the Premier League last season.
Cotterill took charge of Notts County earlier this year and led the Magpies to the League Two title before leaving Meadow Lane at the end of the season.
Pompey chief executive David Lampitt welcomed the arrival of Cotterill, saying: "Steve is the perfect fit for the rebuilding job we want to do here. He's talented, ambitious, energetic and positive, with a very good footballing CV, coming here on the back of a great achievement at Notts County.
"We've got lots of challenges ahead and like the rest of us here at the club, Steve is ready to tackle them head-on to bring stability and long-term success to Pompey."
Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of defender Steven Mouyokolo from Hull on a four-year contract. The 23-year-old has moved to Molineux following the Tigers' relegation to the Championship and has agreed a fifth-year option on a deal which keeps him in the Premier League. Mouyokolo joined the Tigers in January 2009.
