Grant made his debut against Manchester United in May 2005, coming on as a last minute substitute for Joe Cole in Chelsea's 3-1 win. His debut at Old Trafford meant he was seen as a long-term replacement for the ageing Claude Makélélé. Grant, nicknamed 'The Judge', impressed in the reserves to earn a place in the 2004-05 English Champions' first team during the 2005/06 season, for which he had been allocated the squad number 42.In January 2006, Grant was loaned to League One club Oldham Athletic.

From an early age he has been renowned for his hard tackling and this resulted in the first sending off in his senior career in the Chairboys' 1-0 defeat to Notts County. On the 23 March 2007 it was revealed that Chelsea have offered Grant a new contract.
