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.
