Manager Mark Robins set to leave Barnsley

Robins succeeded Simon Davey as Barnsley manager
Barnsley manager Mark Robins has had his contract with the club terminated, reports BBC Radio Sheffield.

It is believed that Robins has received a formal letter informing him that he is now serving a 12-month notice period as per the terms of his contract.

The 41-year-old joined from Rotherham in 2009 and this season guided them to 17th in the Championship, their highest finish for five years.

Neither the club nor Robins have been available for comment.

It is understood that Robins and Reds owner Patrick Cryne have had a disagreement over next season's budget and the overall running of the club moving forward.

As a player, Robins had successful spells at Manchester United, Norwich City, Leicester City, Walsall and Rotherham.

He became assistant manager to Alan Knill at the Millers and replaced him as full-time boss in March 2007 following Knill's sacking.

He was placed on gardening leave by Rotherham while he held talks with Barnsley and was confirmed as boss in September 2009.
