Chelsea insist there is "no truth" in reports that Avram Grant is to return to Stamford Bridge as an advisor to interim manager Rafa Benitez.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich has long been close to Grant and the Israeli was Chelsea manager when the club reached the 2008 Champions League final.

However, a Chelsea spokesman said: "There is no truth in the reports."
