"Barrow has moved down the pecking order at the Swans since the arrival of Luciano Narsingh from PSV Eindhoven so is looking for a move elsewhere with Newcastle emerging as the favourites in the race for his signature.
"They have been trying to lure Andros Townsend back to Tyneside from Crystal Palace without success so have turned to Barrow to boost their attacking options.
"This one looks close to being over the line with a move imminent. We’ve priced Mo Barrow to Newcastle at 4/7.”
