Ethan Pinnock: Brentford sign Barnsley defender for undisclosed fee
Brentford have signed defender Ethan Pinnock from fellow Championship side Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.
The 26-year-old has agreed a three-year contract with the Bees, with the west London club having the option to extend the deal by a further year.
Pinnock spent two years with the Tykes, making 52 appearances last season as Barnsley were promoted from League One.
"Ethan is a good defender with the sort of defensive mindset we want to bring in," said Bees head coach Thomas Frank.
"We like his aerial dominance and he is good at set-pieces in both penalty areas.
"He has a good left foot and has the courage and composure to move the ball forward and find passes that we want to play."
Former Dulwich Hamlet and Forest Green Rovers centre-back Pinnock becomes Brentford's second signing of the summer transfer window.
