Newcastle United are keen to take Swansea City winger Modou Barrow on loan this month as Rafa Benitez ramps up attempts to secure attacking additions this month, report the Chronicle.
It’s largely been a frustrating month for the Magpies thus far, having yet been unable to bring anyone in despite strong links with a move for Andros Townsend. While the report does address that particular story, they claim Crystal Palace are playing hard-ball over the deal.
Noted for his searing pace, the 24-year-old has Championship experience following short stints with the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest during his career thus far. He is also thought to have a £5m release clause, though the Toon are believed to be awaiting a reply from Paul Clement’s side.
