Barnsley assistant head coach Tommy Wright has rejected an offer to move to Championship rivals Bristol City and has signed a new deal with the Tykes.

Wright joined Barnsley in February 2015 as assistant to Bristol City boss Lee Johnson, who he also worked alongside at Oldham Athletic.

The 50-year-old had been offered the under-21 manager role at Ashton Gate.

Bristol City have been without an academy boss since Wade Elliott left the club on 7 June.
