Chelsea have confirmed director Marina Granovskaia will leave the club at the end of the summer transfer window, with co-controlling owner Todd Boehly named chairman and interim sporting director.

Granovskaia, who rose to prominence as one of the toughest negotiators in football during Roman Abramovich's reign, will remain available to support Boehly for the duration of the current transfer window.

Boehly will operate as sporting director until the club names a full-time replacement.

"We thank Marina for her many years of excellent service to the club and wish her all the best in her future ventures," Boehly said in a statement.
