Avram Grant considered MLS move with Red Bulls

Avram Grant's decision to return to Portsmouth as director of football followed more than a month of talks about a similar job at Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls, according to the Israeli's agent.

• Grant rejoins Portsmouth

Don Barnett, who represents Grant in the United States, revealed the former Chelsea boss was discussing a combined head coach and sporting director role at the currently managerless Red Bulls, who have the worst record in MLS this season with three games left to play.

''Grant would make history in New York based on the demographics of the area,'' Barnett told the New York Times. ''With all the Jewish residents and expat Israelis in the area, coupled with his profile at Chelsea, he would have raised the profile of Red Bull to a higher level on and off the field - and helped to sell tickets and attract players. He wants the job but I guess he couldn't wait on them any longer.''

The struggling Red Bulls will see out the MLS season playing under caretaker coach Richie Williams following the resignation of Juan Carlos Osorio in late August.
