Berg: Has received a compensation deal f

Blackburn have moved to clarify speculation around a compensation claim made by Henning Berg - revealing that their former manager has already received a payment of £500,000.

Ex-Rovers, Manchester United and Norway defender Berg won just one game earlier this season before being sacked 10 matches into a three-year contract.

Last week it was widely reported that managing director Derek Shaw was asked to stay away from the club due to an investigation over his role in drawing up Berg's contract, which could leave the npower Championship strugglers landed with a £2million settlement fee.

Rovers have moved to offer assurances over Shaw's position, and with the former Preston chairman in India along with operations director Paul Agnew and caretaker manager Gary Bowyer for meetings with owners Venky's, a further statement appeared on their official website on Tuesday afternoon.

It read: "Following recent and misleading media speculation, Blackburn Rovers FC would like to offer clarification on the situation concerning former manager Henning Berg.

"The owners wish to make it clear that the club's lawyers are actively seeking agreement with Mr Berg on the settlement of his contract. They also wish it to be known that a £500,000 instalment has already been paid to Mr Berg.

"Additionally, the owners would like to state that there is no investigation into this matter with regard to managing director Derek Shaw, who continues to have their complete backing and support.

"Mr Shaw, operations director Paul Agnew and Gary Bowyer are currently in India for meetings with the owners."
