Slade set to stay at Orient

Hill looks set to fill Barnsely hot seat

It seems as if Orient have won their battle to keep charismatic manager Russell Slade at the club.

The O’s boss was a target for Championship side Barnsley, but O’s chairman Barry Hearn rejected a

request from the Yorkshire side to speak to him regarding the job at Oakwell.

Now Rochdale manager Keith Hill, who initially turned down the post, appears to have had a change of heart and is set to be named as Barnsley’s new manager this week.

Slade, who has a year on his current contract to run, has been offered a new long-term deal.
