Swansea City respond to transfer bid from Championship side

Swansea City fans in the Transfer Tavern are sat with interest at the bar wondering about the future of forward Modou Barrow.

The BBC are reporting Swansea have turned down an offer in the region of £1.25 million from Reading for the attacker’s services which suggests the Premier League side see a future for him at the club.

The forward joined the Welsh club in 2014 for a fee of £1.5 million from Swedish side FK Ostersunds.

However, he has failed to make an impact at the Liberty Stadium scoring just twice in 55 games and has subsequently been sent out on loan, including a recent stint at Leeds United last season.

However, the club have already sold Bafetimbi Gomis to Galatasary this summer which has left them slightly short in the striking department, and fellow forward Borja Baston has also joined Malaga on loan.

These two departures hint that Barrow may have a future at the Liberty after all.

Barrow has also represented Gambia at international level six times so elite-level football is something he’s used to.

Punters at the bar think he’s worth keeping as he’s only 24 years old and arguably has the best years of his career yet to come.

What do you think, Swansea fans? Should the club let him go and potentially reinvest the money on something else at the club? Let us know below!
