Leeds United winger Modou Barrow is unsure about what his future holds at the end of this season.

The 24-year-old joined the Whites on-loan for the remainder of this campaign during transfer deadline day from Premier League outfit Swansea City.

But the loanee has so far failed to impress at Elland Road – featuring for just a combined total of 40 minutes over two substitute appearances.

The Gambia international arrived in South Wales as one for Garry Monk’s first recruits for £1.6 million from Swedish club Ostersunds FK in September 2014 on a performance-related contract, and made 11 appearances during his inaugural season.

But the pacey attacker was unable to claim a regular first-team spot for the Swans – and was subsequently loaned out later that year to Nottingham Forest, which was followed by another loan spell away from Swansea during the 2015-16 term, this time at Blackburn Rovers.

Even though Barrow signed a contract extension in June last year – keeping the forward at the Liberty Stadium until 2019, the Gambian finds himself surplus to requirements by his parent club for a third successive season.

With new boss Paul Clement successfully rallying his current squad, there may be no place in South Wales for the dynamic winger.

“No no no I’m still a Swansea City player,”the Leeds man told BBC Radio Leeds when asked if he believed there was still a role for him under the ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid assistant manager.

“I’m here on loan but for me right now here is important, because I’m here.

“The boss is working very hard to go up a division or reach the play-offs at least.

“So right now my focus is Leeds. When the season is finished I can talk about Swansea.”

The 24-year-old will be keen to play an role in his temporary employers’ drive for promotion and could feature in the Whites’ upcoming Championship fixture against Ipswich Town on Saturday.
