Blackburn have confirmed that assistant manager Paul Clement has left the club and he is now expected to join Carlo Ancelotti at Paris St Germain.

Clement, who had been at Rovers for less than four months as replacement for John Jensen, worked with Ancelotti at Chelsea.

Blackburn boss Steve Kean said: "He has left the club and I believe he is just about to take up a very exciting position for him personally across the channel."

He added: "It is a blow because he was very popular with the players but it is no slight on our club and it is an opportunity for someone else.

"We will be bringing in someone else as early as next week."
