Tony Pulis returns to management at Sheffield Wednesday after year out as he replaces the sacked Garry Monk

TONY PULIS has been confirmed as the new boss of Sheffield Wednesday.

The veteran, 62, replaces Garry Monk in the Hillsborough dug-out after he was sacked earlier this week.

Wednesday confirmed his arrival on Twitter.

However, the length of his contract has not yet be announced.

Former Stoke manager Pulis returns to management for the first time in over a year.

He left Middlesbrough after a two-and-a-half year spell in June 2019 after the club narrowly missed out on the play-offs.

The Welshman brings a wealth of experience to Wednesday having managed ten clubs previously.

He has overseen 1,123 games in nearly three decades in the dugout.

Having replaced Harry Redknapp at Bournemouth for his first job, he then went to Gillingham and led them to the League One play-off final.

Stints at Bristol City and Portsmouth followed before two stints at Stoke, with a period at Plymouth sandwiched inbetween.

He guided Stoke to the Premier League and their first-ever FA Cup Final, which secured European qualification.

Pulis was crowned the Premier League Manager of the Year after taking Crystal Palace away from the drop zone to an 11th-place finish.

He then went to West Brom and led them to a top ten finish before he headed to Middlesbrough in 2017.
