Serbian side Partizan set to announce ex-West Ham boss Grant as new manager
Former West Ham, Portsmouth and Chelsea manager Avram Grant is set to take over at Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade, according to reports in the country.
Vecernje Novosti claim that Partizan's board are meeting this week to name Grant as a replacement for Aleksandar Stanojevic, who fell out with club president Dragan Djuric last month.
Return to management: Grant has been out of work since May last year
Grant steered Chelsea to the 2008 Champions League final and was in contention for the Premier League title to the last day of the season after taking over from Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge in 2007.
But his contract was terminated at the end of the season after he missed out on both trophies to Manchester United.
He then had spells at Portsmouth and West Ham, who were both relegated under his stewardship.

Stanojevic won the Serbian league and cup double last season and also steered Partizan to the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2003.
Partizan headed into this season's winter break 10 points clear at the top of the league but Stanojevic fell out with Djuric along with former managing director Mladen Krstajic, who was sacked on Boxing Day after a long-term conflict with the president.
Grant has been out of work since his Upton Park sacking in May 2010.
