Grant to take charge of West Ham next week

Avram Grant is expected to replace Gianfranco Zola as new West Ham United manager next week.

Grant is now tipped to be named as the Italian's successor next week, following his resignation as Portsmouth boss.

Grant is currently on holiday with his family but is understood to have agreed in principle to join the Hammers.

Grant was top of a shortlist which was thought to have included Blackburn's Sam Allardyce, Blackpool's Ian Holloway and Cardiff's Dave Jones.
