It seems that Nottingham Forest are edging closer to signing a Premier League winger during the emergency loan window. Reports are coming through that Forest have been in talks with Premier League side Swansea City over the loaning of their 22-year old Gambian Modou Barrow. Forest, keen to bolster their attacking options, are thought to be ready to bring Barrow to the City Ground with the chance of first team football in a competitive league being the bargaining chip that they [Forest] can promise.
Barrow, a right midfielder/winger, only signed for Swansea in September 2014 from Swedish club Ostersunds who he had 10 goals and 8 assists for in the 2013/14 Superettan League championship. Barrow scored his first goal for the Swans in January’s 6-2 FA Cup trouncing of Tranmere Rovers and he has made 7 Premier League appearances this season but only one start against Sunderland on February 7th.
9th-placed Forest will be hoping that Barrow will allow them to push on from their current position and maintain the form that has seen them emerge as the 3rd-ranked ‘form’ team (last six games) in the Championship with 13 points from a possible 18 and an impressive tally of 16 goals over these six games.
