Cardiff Blues say they have settled their dispute with London Wasps over Dai Young's appointment.

Young had a year left on his Blues contract when he accepted an offer to take over as head coach at Wasps.

The Blues had warned they would take legal action to the Aviva Premiership club refused to pay compensation.

But chief executive Robert Norster said: "We are obviously pleased to finally bring this contractual dispute to an amicable resolution."

The Blues have not revealed the details of the agreement, insisting that "the terms of the settlement are to remain confidential".

Norster added: "We wish Dai every future success in his onward career with his new club."

After appointing Young in June, Wasps had stressed they had no intention of paying anything to the Welsh region for Young's services.
