Swansea City ready to capture young striker Madou Barrow

Swansea City look poised to sign youngster Madou Barrow from Swedish minnows Ostersunds.

Swansea City are preparing to sign 21-year-old striker Modou Barrow with a fee of around £1.75m reportedly agreed.

Barrow, who plays for Swedish second-tier side Ostersunds, has met with Swans chairman Huw Jenkins this week, according to the South Wales Evening Post.

"The club is both glad and proud and wishes Modou all the best," Ostersunds chairman Daniel Kindberg is quoted as saying.

"I've never been involved in a bigger deal, and I don't know if I'll ever be involved in anything similar again."

Barrow was supposedly the subject of a rejected £600,000 bid from Bolton Wanderers earlier this season, after having impressed during a trial with the Championship club.
