London - Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert and his old club Norwich settled their dispute over his bitter Carrow Road departure on Sunday, a month before the case was to go to a Premier League tribunal.

Lambert left Norwich before the start of this season after three years in which he led the Canaries to successive promotions and 12th place in the Premier League.

Both sides were suing each other for breach of contract.

"Paul Lambert, Norwich City and Aston Villa have agreed settlement in respect of the dispute regarding Paul Lambert's departure from Norwich City," said a statement released by both clubs.

"Villa will pay Norwich City the original amount as agreed in the contract between Paul Lambert and Norwich City, and Norwich City will pay Paul Lambert the bonus he was entitled to after completion of the 2011/12 season.

"This represents a final settlement of all claims and disputes between the parties. No further comment will be made."
