Barnsley have signed Scotland international defender Jay McEveley on a free transfer following his release by Derby County in May.

The 25-year-old former Blackburn Rovers player has signed a two-year contract at Oakwell.

"I am very happy to have brought Jay to the club," Barnsley manager Mark Robins told the club's website.

"When I found found out that he was interested in coming to speak with us I wasted no time in getting him here."
