Former Norwich City striker Mark Robins has been appointed as the new manager of Barnsley.

Robins replaces Simon Davey, whose contract at Oakwell was terminated “by mutual consent” after the Yorkshire club took just one point from their first five Championship games.

The 39-year-old was placed on “gardening leave” by Rotherham last week after expressing his desire to speak to Barnsley.

The move has now been completed after the two clubs settled on a figure to secure Robins' release from the Millers.

Robins joined the Canaries from Manchester United in 1992 and made 78 senior appearances, scoring 21 goals, before moving to Leicester in 1995.

He spent 2½ years in charge of Rotherham and takes his backroom staff of John Breckin, Steve Taylor and Nick Daws with him.

Robins was linked with the City vacancy last January after the sacking of Glenn Roeder.
