If reports are to be believed, Peter Kenyon is on his way out of Chelsea after being benched at Stamford Bridge.

The former Man United chief and Umbro man is disappointed at playing only a bit part in the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti and seeing Luiz Felipe Scolari sacked while he was away from the club.

Chelsea have also appointed a new sporting director in the form of Frank Arnesen so Kenyon will be losing his role in player signings, whether that affects him is yet to be seen but Chelsea insist Kenyon is staying at the Bridge and no one else is lined up to replace anyone.

Speculation has it that Manchester city are to offer Peter Kenyon a way out of Chelsea.

On another page, reports suggest that Mark Hughes is intending to raid his old club again but not for a player this time round, Hughes is looking to bring in another former Man United employee in the form of Blackburn physio Dave Fevre, it is suggested Hughes is on the case of the highly-rated physio as we speak.

Meanwhile former Manchester City youngster Bradley Wright-Phillips, younger brother to Shaun Wright-Phillips has left Southampton FC to join Plymouth Argyle FC on a two year deal. Good luck to you Bradley.
