Pinnock was one of Barnsley’s standout players last season, playing 52 times and helping the Tykes to promotion as League One runners-up.
The move represents Barnsley’s third major defensive departure this summer after goalkeeper Adam Davies and centre-back Liam Lindsay opted to join Stoke City last week.
