Modou Barrow has been on trial with English second tier outfit Bolton Wanderers for over a week featuring in the club pre-season games. It didn’t take long for the 21-year-old Gambian-born to impress Bolton’s gaffer who swiftly acted slapping an offer in the region of 600,000 pounds. However, the championship club proposal, it has emerged, has been waived out of the door by Barrow’s Swedish club Ostersunds who consider the offer below their valuation of the Gambian attacker.

Omar Alieu Koroma came closed to being the first when he notched a contract with Portsmouth then in the EPL in 2008 under gaffer Rednapp.  ]]>
