Former Newcastle United first-team coach Ian Cathro has rejoined Nuno Espirito Santo after the latter was appointed Tottenham manager.
The pair worked together until the end of last season at Molineux, and the 34-year-old will assume the post of assistant head coach in North London.
Cathro joined United in the summer of 2015 as part of Steve McClaren’s backroom team, and was expected to leave following his dismissal in March 2016.

However, Rafa Benitez was keen to maintain continuity behind the scenes and the first-team coach as well as goalkeeper coach Simon Smith were kept on.
The former Liverpool boss said: “He is a great young coach with some experience and he has a great future.”
Cathro spent a further nine months on Tyneside before accepting the head-coach position at Hearts.
However, he was sacked following a disappointing eight-month spell in the Scottish capital.
Cathro has previously worked alongside Nuno at Rio Ave and Valencia, and the pair will now work together again at their fourth club.
The former Wolves boss was named Jose Mourinho’s successor on Wednesday night, having signed a deal until 2023.
Cathro is not the only familiar face to rejoin Nuno at Tottenham, with Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias reprising their Molineux roles as goalkeeper and fitness coach respectively.
After a spell in interim charge of the first team following Mourinho’s exit, Ryan Mason has returned to his academy role as head of player development.
