O'Driscoll rejects Barnsley

Sean O'Driscoll has turned down the opportunity to become the new manager at Barnsley.

• Wolves make Saunders approach

O'Driscoll was surprisingly sacked by Nottingham Forest a matter of hours after their Boxing Day win over Leeds, and had been the overwhelming favourite to fill the vacant position at Barnsley, who sacked Keith Hill at the end of December.

The former Doncaster boss met with Barnsley's board on Thursday but released a statement on Sunday through the club ruling himself out of the running.

He said: "Barnsley is a well-run club whose achievements in successfully maintaining their Championship status for so many seasons should never be underestimated.

"But at this moment, and given the extremely disappointing and sudden nature of my departure from Nottingham Forest, I've respectfully declined the opportunity to become Barnsley's next manager. I wish the club, players and supporters all the best for the rest of the season.''

Hill's former assistant, David Flitcroft, took the reins for the Tykes' 1-0 FA Cup win over Burnley on Saturday.
