Modou Barrow has signed a new four-year contract extension with Swansea, the Welsh club have announced.

Barrow made his Premier League debut as substitute replacing Marvin Emnes in the 77th minute in a 2-1 win over Arsenal in November, becoming the first Gambian to play in the English top-flight following his arrival at the Liberty stadium on a short-term deal from Swedish side Ostersunds FK in August.

“It’s great to sign the new contract,” Barrow said. “It was an easy decision.

“I came here until January initially, but now I can settle for the next four years. My girlfriend and I really like it here and we are really happy. I was delighted to sign the contract.

“It’s been amazing to play for the first-team since joining in the summer. I have tried to work as hard as possible in training and when I’ve been given my chance, but I know I must keep working for further opportunities.”

Barrow earned coach Garry Monk’s confidence following an impressive run with the club’s U-21 team for whom he has scored 5 goals in seven appearances. He has made further first-team appearances against Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

The 22-year-old grabbed his first Swansea goal in the 6-2 win over Tranmere in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.
