By Sulayman Bah First Gambian to play in the English Premier League Modou Barrow hasModou Barrow 01 been loaned out by Swansea City. 22-year-old Barrow who recently signed a long-term deal with the Swans joins Nottingham Forest in the English second tier for rest of the on-going campaign.Barrow who was last month in Gambia on a brief breather makes the move after getting international clearance. The reason behind the Gambian’s transfer is to acquaint him with the rigours of English football and get first-team experience. He’d been partly used at Swansea City whom he signed for on permanent basis after an initial 3-month loan from Swedish second tier side Ostersunds FK. His acquisition will beef up Forest in their pursuit of promotion to the top. Barrow made his EPL debut against Arsenal coming off the bench. Meanwhile another Gambian and erstwhile U-17 forward Buba Findi Jammeh has signed for Pumas, a club in the US Premier Development League and two-time Western Conference champions. The PDL is equivalent to the fourth tier and the ex-Steve Biko man’s third club since leaving the Gambia.  ]]>
