HRNRIK LARSSON looks to be closing in on a bizarre move to English football next week with Dirk Kuyt reportedly set to join the Swedish legend at Struggling Southend.
Another man who could be involved in the coaching staff is former Celtic striker Tommy Johnson after more reports were leaked online.
It's my understanding it's Henrik Larsson for Blues. Dirk Kuyt will be his assistant and Tommy Johnson could be involved in the set up too.

Tommy Johnson played alongside Henrik at Celtic and supporters got to meet the Geordie frontman at this summer’s Celtic festival.
Henrik returning to take up his first managerial post in the UK is a big deal but if the club is Southend it would be a surprising return for the Celtic legend.
He left Helsingborg for the second time this year under a cloud after reports of a fallout.
Henrik is determined to become a top coach and is trying to build a pathway to the top of the game – it remains to be seen if Southend is the correct route.
