Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore has emerged as a surprise inclusion on the bookies’ list of potential next Barnsley bosses.

The Owls’ South Yorkshire rivals are managerless after Markus Schopp was sacked earlier this week with them second-bottom of the Championship and though their recent history of employment may suggest the likely candidate will come from abroad, Moore is among a few domestic names on the betting long-list.

The 47-year-old enjoyed a successful two-year stint at Oakwell towards the back end of his playing career and is priced as an outside chance at 20/1 alongside relative unknowns Dominik Thalhammer, Matthias Jaissle and Poya Asbaghi.

Barnsley-born Mick McCarthy is the current favourite at 7/2, with former Tykes man Alex Neil second-favourite at 6/1.
