Barnsley are set to appoint Gerhard Struber as their new head coach after he left Austrian side Wolfsberger AC.

BBC Radio Sheffield reported on Monday that the 42-year-old was in advanced talks with the Championship strugglers.

Struber helped Wolfsberger to a third-place finish last season after taking over in January 2019.

The Tykes are without a win since the opening weekend of the season and have been without a head coach since parting company with Daniel Stendel last month.

Stendel led the club to promotion from League One in 2018-19.

Adam Murray has overseen five games in caretaker charge, drawing three and losing two, including a 4-2 defeat by Stoke City on 9 November.
