Former Portsmouth boss Avram Grant is drawing up the backroom team he wants to bring with him to West Ham United.

The Daily Express says Grant is expected to bring three members of the Pompey backroom staff he worked with last season: coaches Paul Groves and Ian Woan, and goalkeeping specialist David Coles.

Steve Clarke, who was previous manager Gianfranco Zola's assistant, is expected to stay on for now.

Grant is also hoping to lure at least two players from Pompey - midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng and goalkeeper David James.
