Blackburn to pay compensation to Blackpool for Appleton deal

Blackburn Rovers have been granted permission to hold talks with Michael Appleton and will also pay Blackpool a compensation fee if a deal is done.

The Lancashire club are keen on the Seasiders manager to replace the sacked Henning Berg and it is believed that negotiations are now at an advanced stage.

"Blackpool FC can confirm that following discussions with Blackburn Rovers and Michael Appleton, permission has been granted for the manager and Ashley Westwood to discuss personal terms with the club," read a statement on Blackpool's official website.

Appleton only took over at Bloomfield Road in November but it appears as though he is already set for the departure doors with the Ewood Park vacancy looming.
