American defender Donovan Pines has joined Barnsley of England’s third-tier League One, leaving Major League Soccer’s D.C. United after four seasons.

Pines, 25, agreed to a 1 1/2-year contract that includes a team option for 2025-26, the club said Saturday.

Pines played at the University of Maryland before signing with D.C. The 6-foot-5 center back made 21 league appearances last year.

Pines has played twice for the United States, both in the group stage of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
