"West Ham United can confirm the club is making good progress in the search for a new manager and the appointment will be made by early June," the Upton Park club said in a statement on their website on Friday.

"The club is in the middle of a thorough selection process which could continue over the next 12 days before being finalised."

Former Chelsea boss Grant, 55, is expected to get the job after resigning as manager of relegated Portsmouth on Thursday.

The Israeli defied the odds in guiding the cash-strapped south coast club to this season's FA Cup final where they were beaten 1-0 by Premier League champions Chelsea.
