West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has won his damages case against former Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean.

Allardyce has accepted "substantial damages" from Kean and former club Blackburn Rovers after finally settling his legal row out of court on Friday night.

Allardyce is believed to have received around £200,000 after Kean and Rovers accepted liability for the disparaging comments made about the West Ham manager while his former No 2 was in charge at Ewood Park, says the Telegraph.
