Chelsea's longest serving member of the back-room staff, player liaison officer Gary Staker, has left the club after his position was made redundant. 

The veteran ally of numerous Chelsea managers including Gianluca Vialli, Claudio Ranieri and Jose Mourinho had considered legal action after the club suggested a change of role earlier in the summer.

But Sportsmail has learned that he has finally accepted a redundancy package and departed last Friday.
