Modou Barrow praises 'amazing' Nottingham Forest fans after ending loan spell

Forest City Ground

Swansea City forward Modou Barrow has returned from his loan at Nottingham Forest.

Around six weeks after joining Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the season, Gambian forward Modou Barrow has returned to Swansea City.

The 22-year-old smashed ten goals in 19 games for Swedish side Ostersunds last season, and Swansea decided to take a calculated gamble on him last summer, bringing him to England.

When he made his debut against Arsenal in November, Barrow became the first Gambian to ever play in the Premier League, but he was largely a fringe player under Garry Monk as Swansea eased him into life in English football.

With the season drawing to an end and no sign of first team football in South Wales on the horizon, Swansea allowed Barrow to go out on loan to Championship side Forest in March.

Barrow has played in four games for Forest, but only two were starts, and with just 143 minutes of action to his name, he has now returned to South Wales ahead of Forest's final game of the campaign next week.

Barrow took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to reflect on his time at the City Ground, praising the club's fans and passing on wishes for the club to be promoted in the future.
