Sheffield Wednesday have appointed Tony Pulis as their new manager.

The 62-year-old has been out of management since leaving Middlesbrough at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

Pulis succeeds Garry Monk, who was sacked on Monday.

"Pulis brings a wealth of experience to Hillsborough having overseen a mammoth 1,123 senior games through almost three decades in the dugout," read a club statement.

Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield Wed and Millwall

Wednesday sit in 23rd place in the Championship, having won two of their last 12 matches.

A run of four straight league defeats was ended with a 1-0 win against Bournemouth on November 3 before last Saturday's goalless draw with Millwall, which proved Monk's last game in charge.

Wednesday were given a 12-point deduction in August for the 2020-21 season after being found guilty of breaching EFL spending rules, but the penalty was halved to six points last week following an appeal.
