Modou Barrow wants to keep Swansea City fans on their feet
7th July 2016
Modou Barrow has vowed to keep the Jack Army "on their feet a lot more" after signing a new three-year contract at Swansea City.
The winger, who had two years left on his original contract, has penned an additional one-year deal which sees him remain at the Liberty until June 2019.
Barrow, who became the first Gambian to score in the Premier League when he netted against Bournemouth in March, made 25 appearances last season for the Swans after starting the campaign on loan at Championship side Blackburn Rovers.
The 23-year-old's rapid pace and trickery has made him a big favourite among Swans fans, and Barrow is hoping to create yet more excitement among supporters in the new campaign.
"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract," revealed Barrow, who is part of the travelling party for the club's two-game tour in America.
"Now I've signed a longer contract, I really want to push on here.
"Now we've had a break, we are all looking forward to starting the season.
"We have a pre-season tour of America ahead of us, which will really benefit the squad. There is a real sense of excitement for the new season.
"On a personal level, I want to get the fans on their feet. That's what I want to do when I'm on the ball.
"I'm happy to get their support when I'm playing and I want to get them on their feet a lot more.
"Francesco (Guidolin) is a good manager. He gave me a lot of chances to prove myself in games, and I'm looking forward to improving under him."
