West Ham boss Allardyce confirms Kean, Blackburn case close

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has said he is close to settling a damages claim against Steve Kean out of court.

Kean, during his stint as Blackburn manager, was filmed making apparently disparaging comments about his predecessor Allardyce.

Allardyce, who was sacked by Blackburn in December 2010, said of his claim: "No, I don't think it's final but it's close."
