Ajax boss Henk Ten Cate has an "agreement" with Chelsea to become manager Avram Grant´s new assistant according to his agent, Sigi Lens.

Chelsea released a statement on Thursday admitting that one option the club were considering was teaming current number two Steve Clarke with a foreign coach. And Ten Cate, who previously worked under compatriot Frank Rijkaard at Barcelona, looks to have moved the head of the queue.

Lens told The Sun: "It´s true, we have an agreement with Chelsea. It´s an opportunity for him, a challenge for him to work with a big team and work with Avram Grant to build a new team. It´s a big opportunity for Henk with big players.
