A number of names have been linked with the vacant managerial role at Barnsley including former Newport County boss Michael Flynn and ex-Preston manager Alex Neil, however the Tykes look set to appoint a coach from overseas once again.
Both of Barnsley’s previous two managers – Schopp and Valerien Ismael - came from abroad, with the latter previously managing Austrian club LASK while Schopp spent three years with TSV Hartberg.
The Tykes have been without a manager since Schopp’s departure last week.
