Blackburn Rovers have confirmed that manager Steve Kean has signed a revision of his current contract at Ewood Park.
The 44-year-old, who took over from Sam Allardyce in December 2010, has not signed an extended deal, with his contract still due to run out in the summer of 2013.
An agreement was made between the Club's Indian owners Venkys and Kean before the start of the season, and this has now been formalised - despite a difficult start to their Barclays Premier League campaign.
A statement on the Club's official website (rovers.co.uk) read: "Following recent media speculation Blackburn Rovers FC can confirm a revision to manager Steve Kean's existing contact has been completed.
"An agreement made in the summer has now been formalised. Contrary to some reports there is no change to the length of the contract.
"The Club respects that all contracts are private and confidential and no further comment will be made."
Blackburn lie 19th in the Barclays Premier League after picking up seven points from 12 matches.
