Tykes coach Paul Harsley told the club’s official website: “Jared led by example throughout last season and did everything we asked of him on and off the pitch.
“He has been rewarded for that with a new deal and I couldn’t be more pleased for him. All the coaches at the club will continue to work with him and hope his progression continues.”
Bird was part of the first-team squad for several Championship matches last season.
