Inverness have given npower Championship club Barnsley permission to speak to manager Terry Butcher about the vacancy at Oakwell.

The Tykes sacked Keith Hill at the end of last month after they slipped to the bottom of the table and were hoping to appoint Sean O'Driscoll as his permanent replacement. But O'Driscoll, 55, surprisingly sacked by Nottingham Forest just hours after their Boxing Day win over Leeds, turned down the Barnsley job on Sunday.

Club director Don Rowing told Press Association Sport on Monday morning that interviews would resume at Oakwell in the next 48 hours. Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron said in a statement: "We have given Barnsley FC permission to speak to Terry."
