Blackburn managing director Derek Shaw claims discussions to secure Blackpool's Michael Appleton as the npower Championship club's new manager remain ongoing.

A statement from Shaw was released on Blackburn's official website, www.rovers.co.uk, on Wednesday night confirming their interest in the 37-year-old former Portsmouth boss, with a Blackpool statement acknowledging a "formal approach" shortly afterwards.

Despite no further official line from Blackpool it was widely reported on Thursday morning that Rovers' bid to secure Appleton as Henning Berg's successor at Ewood Park had been knocked back. When contacted by Press Association Sport with regards to this, Shaw said: "We're in discussion, if that can be adequate."
