Barnsley to open talks with Rochdale boss Keith Hill

Keith Hill
Hill was appointed Rochdale manager in January 2007

Barnsley have been granted permission by Rochdale to speak to Keith Hill about becoming their new manager.

The 42-year-old guided Rochdale to ninth in League One last season, following promotion in 2010.

Barnsley said they are still finalising their shortlist of candidates to succeed Mark Robins.

Robins stepped down as Barnsley manager three days after being placed on a 12-month notice period after a disagreement over budgets.

A statement on the Rochdale website said the board had given its permission 'with great reluctance'.
