Avram Grant is ready to take charge of West Ham United.

Israel sources say Grant has accepted an offer of a three-year contract to succeed Gianfranco Zola as manager of West Ham United.

Grant and Pini Zahavi, his agent, agreed broad details of the deal on Wednesday, the day before Grant announced his departure from Portsmouth with an emotional statement on the website of the FA Cup finalists.

An official announcement could be made before the end of the month.
