Brentford have completed the signing of central defender Ethan Pinnock from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee. The 26-year-old London-born defender completed a medical earlier today, Tuesday 2 July, and signed a three-year deal. There is a Club option for an extra year. He will link up with The Bees this week and is available for the pre-season friendly against AFC Wimbledon on Friday ahead of the training camp in Austria that begins on Saturday.

Would suggest given his age not a lot of sell on potential here (compared to a Meps) but more about buying quality to help us progress.

Great signing.

Barnsley fans seem to think he's a steal, should the region of the £3mill fee be accurate.
He has had quite the step up considering he was playing in the isthmian leagues just 3 years ago.

if we were to get promoted, a premier league defender aged 27/28 would still command a decent fee :)

Looked strong and positive whenever I watched him last season. A left footer who played on the right for Barnsley. Really good in the air, quick and a good long passer of the ball. He has not got too many mile son the clock and still ha sa lot of scope for improvement. Really pleased with this signing.

Yeah, a bit like the Noorgaard signing, it's exactly what we need. Very good start to the transfer window so far.
If we somehow hang on to our Frenchmen then it could be a very exciting season!

A touch of John Egan about Pinnock. Aerially dominant, strongly physically and a defender first and foremost. But whilst he’s not as good on the ball as say, Konsa, he’s confident in receiving the ball on the ground and an effective decision maker, playing a long ball of booting it into Row Z if needs be.

He will be vital in tough away games where last season Mepham and Konsa struggled with the ugly side of football.

Barnsley fans are in complete meltdown over this, giving it the #teamslikebrentford.

Says all you need to know really.

Normally you get the usual line that he's crap, but this appears to be a tremendous signing.

To be fair our fans have said similar when some of our players have made seemingly sideways moves

My FotMob mobile app notified me it was for £2.75m. Even at £3m seems a good signing.

Having now spent some time perusing the Barnsley forums, this signing sounds like such a great bit of business! Now if we were to keep Konsa that defense might start looking quite tasty.

Forgive my lack of knowhow (and being forgetful) but is he our record signing?

They were all undisclosed so how do we know? Itk people, if there really are any, should not be disclosing if the Club don't want the figures announced!

Not seen him play, I was told his distribution is a strong point, that not the case?

Was our number 1 target to replace Mepham in January - couldn't get the deal done then and probably the player himself wanted to stay on and help Barnsley promoted. Not seem him play myself but looks a coup. I am delighted with this signing, especially as he has been on our radar for a while now.

I am sure he will make the step up with ease. Welcome to the club Ethan

Very good signing.Plenty to be pleased about .
Yep, we wanted a bit of experience, height and steel and we’ve got Norgaard and Pinnock who fit the bill.
Now if we could just keep the forwards or if we have to sell pray we have replacements lined up.

Welcome aboard Ethan.

Slightly disappointed that Les doesn't seem to have found an anagram yet

View from NTT20 podcast:

If he can maintain the standards of last season - and why wouldn’t he? - then he’s going to add a lot to Bees defensively and is decent, if a bit ungainly, with the ball.

Whilst the other lot down the road are getting all excited about picking up Barbet on a free, we casually pick up the best CB in league one last season bringing our spending up to £6m so far this summer.... Top work as usual!

I liked the look of him last season, but that was at a lower level. He can score goals as well. Welcome to Brentford!
