Pines’ absence will be a blow to Barnsley as they look to claw themselves out of League One.

He was brought in by Neill Collins to bolster their defensive department but it has been a frustrating start to life in England for him.

The centre-back has made four appearances for the Tykes but will now have to watch on as his teammates try and gain promotion to the Championship.

Pines penned a contract until June 2025, with the club holding an option for a further 12 months on top of that, meaning he will be pushing to return to his best for the next campaign.

The twice-capped USA international played for the Maryland Terrapins before linking up with DC United as a youngster.

He then went on to become a key player for the Washington outfit in MLS and played 87 games for them, many of which came under the guidance of Wayne Rooney, and he found the net on six occasions.

Barnsley are back in action tomorrow with a home clash against Cambridge United. They then head to Burton Albion on Easter Monday.

Collins’ men drew 0-0 with Cheltenham Town in their last outing before the international break.

The Tykes are 5th in the table but are seven points off the top two with eight fixtures left to play.
