Barrow linked with Forest move: Three questions and reaction from fans

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest have been linked with a loan move for Modou Barrow of Swansea City.

The Daily Mail has reported that Nottingham Forest are close to a loan move for Swansea City wide man Modou Barrow.

The paper claims that an agreement is already in place between the clubs, with only the official paperwork to be concluded.

Here are three questions and initial reaction from Forest fans related to the deal.

What sort of player are Forest getting?

Barrow can play down either wing and also has experience playing centrally as a forward. His versatility will be extremely useful for Forest over the rest of the season, giving Dougie Freedman extra options in key positions.

What are his main assets?

Other than his versatility, he’s good in possession of the ball and extremely quick. He’ll be a good player for Forest to utilise on the counter attack. He can exploit space and link up with the full-back on either side effectively.

What does it mean for players in Forest’s current squad?

That’s difficult to judge until the deal is confirmed and Freedman starts using him. However, with Jamie Paterson a winger and an unused sub looking back to last weekend, Barrow could arguably force him towards the exit door.

Here is some initial reaction from Forest fans.
