BARNSLEY are due to appoint Rochdale boss Keith Hill as their new manager tomorrow.
Hill initially ruled himself out of the running for the job last week, but made a U-turn and reopened talks on Monday and is now poised to take over from Mark Robins, who was an unsuccesful candidate for the hot seat at Sheffield United.
The 42-year-old guided the north Manchester club to promotion from League 2 last yeaar and then to their joint highest position of ninth in League 1 last season.
Leyton Orient’s Russell Slade was also a target for Barnsley but an approach for him was rejected.
The new manager will officially be unveiled at a noon press conference at Oakwell.
Robins quit after failing to agree with the club’s board over the budget for next season.
