Mauricio Pochettino has agreed to become the new manager of Chelsea.
The 51 year old will become the permanent successor to Graham Potter who was sacked at the start of April after less than seven months in charge at Stamford Bridge.
However, there will be no immediate change, with Frank Lampard continuing as interim coach until the end of the season.
The Argentine has been out of work since he, in turn, was fired by PSG last summer, and now is tasked with turning round a Chelsea ship that has steered into choppy waters in the first year since the Todd Boehly consortium assumed control.
The club will finish mid-table at best this season, meaning there is no European football for fans to look forward to next campaign.
He also inherits a bloated squad that both needs to be trimmed down and augmented in a number of key positions, particularly in attacking areas.

He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each.
