Outwith Ajax coach Henk ten Cate, Chelsea boss Avram Grant still intends to appoint one, possibly two, more assistants to his backroom staff.

The People says Grant has drawn up a shortlist, which includes:

JAMIE REDKNAPP
The Sky TV pundit is now being offered a long-term deal to stay on the screen and away from Chelsea. Has told friends he is "totally undecided".

Gary McALLISTER
Popular figure but no obvious Chelsea link. It is down to him or Redknapp for the role of 'dressing-room buffer' between the players and manager.

GRAEME LE SAUX
Another being discussed despite a lack of any kind of coaching background.

MARCEL DESAILLY
Chelsea legend but little coaching experience.

JOHN GREGORY
Being pushed by one of Chelsea's leading advisers despite having just been sacked by QPR.

EYAL LACHMAN
Grant's ally and personal friend.
