Controversial: This Swansea City player could inspire Cardiff City to promotion next season

Published

Neil Warnock did an excellent job at the Cardiff City Stadium following his appointment back in October, taking Cardiff City from the depths of the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone, to a side that finished comfortably in mid-table.

The veteran manager is now targeting promotion next season with Cardiff, and believes if he receives the backing from the people above him, he will be able to deliver Premier League football for the Bluebirds.

Keeping the nucleus of his squad together will be Warnock’s first task, along with adding the necessary players to inspire a promotion challenge during the 2017/18 campaign.

One player who could be a good signing for Cardiff is Swansea City’s Mo Barrow, who seems out of favour at the Liberty Stadium.

Barrow spent the second-half of the 2016/17 campaign on-loan with Leeds United, where he failed to impress at Elland Road, despite Garry Monk making a big effort to take the winger to West Yorkshire in January.

However, it wasn’t just Leeds who were interested in signing Barrow in early 2017, eventual Champions, Newcastle United, were reportedly keen on signing the 24-year old – showing exactly the calibre of player he is.

Barrow’s career appears to be stalling with Swansea, and loan moves to Leeds and Blackburn over the last two campaigns have not worked for the Gambian.

A permanent move away from the Liberty Stadium could reenergise Barrow’s career, and should he make the move to Cardiff, he has the potential to become a very important player for the Bluebirds.
