Doncaster Rovers have asked Inverness Caledonian Thistle for permission to speak to manager Terry Butcher about the vacancy at the Keepmoat Stadium, STV has learned.

The League One side are the second English side to make an approach for the boss on Monday, with Barnsley having been granted permission to hold talks with the former England international defender.

The Inverness board met on Monday afternoon to consider Barnsley's approach. STV understands that Doncaster Rovers have now also asked for the opportunity to speak to the in-demand manager but have not yet had a response from the Highland club.

Doncaster Rovers are currently in second place in English League One but are searching for a new boss after Dean Saunders agreed to join Wolves on Sunday.

Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron said after allowing Barnsley’s request that the club were hoping Butcher would remain at the Caledonian Stadium.

“We have given Barnsley permission to speak to Terry,” he said.

"Given our current position in the SPL and the fact we have a cup semi-final on the horizon, it is inevitable that if any managerial positions that come up our management team will no doubt be on the radar.

"We will be doing everything possible to ensure that Terry remains with the club and finishes what has been an incredible journey to date for us all."

Ex-England international Butcher has taken Inverness CT to second in this season's Scottish Premier League table, taking 34 points from their 21 matches this season. He is the longest serving manager currently in the SPL.

Caley Thistle are also through to the semi-finals of the League Cup, where they are due to face Hearts on January 26.

Butcher was appointed as manager at Caledonian Stadium in 2009, having spent time with Sydney and Brentford after leaving Motherwell in 2006 after a four-year spell in charge.

The 54-year-old has also managed Coventry City and Sunderland. Capped 77 times by England, Butcher was also Scotland's assistant boss during the reign of George Burley.
