Barnsley have today confirmed that left back Dani Pinillos has arrived at Oakwell on a permanent deal from Spanish side Cordoba.

The 25 year old 6ft defender comes into the club on a two and a half year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Pinillos knows the Championship well as he spent two years with Nottingham Forest at this level before heading back to Cordoba last summer, but Barnsley have been tracking him across that period so will be delighted to get a deal done.

He’ll give head coach Paul Heckingbottom a solid option on the left and he’s also pretty handy on the wing from what I remember of him.

Since making his debut as an 18 year old, he boasts over 150 senior appearances to his name, and his spell at the City Ground saw him make 33 starting appearances in the Championship with a further two showings from the bench.
