Chelsea boss Avram Grant stopped short of confirming Ajax coach Henk ten Cate will be one of his lieutenants at Stamford Bridge but admitted the Dutchman was among the names on his shortlist.

Grant´s inability to confirm Ten Cate would join his staff was mirrored in Holland, where the Ajax coach played down suggestions he would be leaving the Dutch side for Chelsea, insisting he will be on the bench as normal when Ajax play Sparta Rotterdam on Sunday.

Grant has always worked with two assistants and, with Steve Clarke set to continue in his role, the Israeli is looking for one other to report to him, and he declared: "It is not a secret. I have made it clear in the past that we have lost four coaches - one assistant coach, one fitness coach, one goalkeeping coach and one scout."
