Former Jeonbuk Hyundai teammate Modou Barou has joined Sibaspor of Turkiye.
Sivaspor announced the signing of Barrow on loan from Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli on Aug. 28 (KST). The loan is until the end of the 온라인카지노 2023-2024 season.
Barrow is no stranger to South Korea, where he spent two and a half years. The Gambia international has played for Swedish side Östersund, Swansea City in the English Premier League (EPL) and Nottingham Forest, Leeds United and Reading in the Championship (second tier). After a year with Denizlispor in the Turkkiye, he moved to South Korea in the summer of 2020.
In his two-and-a-half years as a foreign striker for Jeonbuk, Barrow made waves with his speed and athleticism shortly after his debut, but injuries and other issues kept him from showing his full potential. Last year, he had a breakout season, scoring 13 goals in the K League. The 13 goals were a “career high” for Barrow in his 10-year professional career.
This winter, Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli snapped up Barrow for a hefty transfer fee for their ‘promotion project’. The player had just proven himself after a long stint at Jeonbuk, but the offer was reportedly more than Al Ahli was willing to pay.
At the time, Al Ahli were in the Saudi second division. To get promoted in the shortest amount of time, they swept aside the likes of Chinese league top scorer Malceng and K League One winger Barlow, and achieved their goal. This summer, the Saudis were at the center of a recruitment rush that saw them sweep up a number of top-flight players, including José Ibáñez, Roberto Firmino, Edouard Mendy, Merych Demirall, Franck Kessie, Alain Saint-Baximain, and Gabriel Beiga.
They were forced to let go of their promotion players after only half a season. Malkung returned to his former club Wuhan Sun, while Barrow headed to Turkkiye, where he had previously played. For Barlow, it’s a return to the European league after three years in Asia. For Sivaspor, who narrowly avoided relegation last season by finishing 14th in the Turkkiye Super Lig, Barrow’s performance will be crucial.
