GLENN HODDLE, Chelsea's new player-manager, yesterday appointed Dundee's Graham Rix, his former England team- mate, as youth-team coach in place of Peter Nicholas.

Chelsea and Swindon may need a tribunal to evaluate compensation over Hoddle's move. Ray Hardman, the Swindon chairman, said: 'I saw a vaulation of Glenn in the newspapers at pounds 1.5m and I wouldn't argue with that.' Chelsea would. 'If they are talking pounds 1.5m then the matter will have to go to a tribunal to decide the fee,' Chelsea's chief executive, Colin Hutchinson, said.

The Welsh international David Phillips has said he will leave Norwich after failing to win the new contract he wanted. Two offers to replace the existing deal which expires this summer were, he said, 'derisory'. Chelsea and Crystal Palace are thought to be interested. Mark Bowen, Phillips' colleague, has decided to stay at Carrow Road.
