By signing for South Korean side Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, Modou Barrow has said he’s up for a new challenge in the K-League.
The Gambia international joins the reigning Korean champions after spending the 2019-20 campaign on loan in the Turkish Super Lig with Denizlispor.
After completing the move to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors on Monday, Barrow took to tweeter to pen his farewell note and also praised Reading fans for their support during his time at the club.
“The time has come for me to accept a new challenge in my career. As a professional football player we look forward to challenges and improving but to say goodbye sometimes is always the hardest,” Barrow tweeted.
“I would like to say I am grateful for the fond memories and great time spent with you all at Reading FC. To all the wonderful staff, I enjoyed working with you all.
Barrow joined Reading from Championship rivals Swansea City in 2017, and he scored 14 goals in 82 appearances across all competitions for the Royals.
“Special thank you to the amazing fans who show up come rain, come sunshine supporting and cheering us to reach our goals. For this I say a big thank you until we meet again once a Royal always a Royal, you guys will always be in my heart.”
However, he will be aiming to help Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors retain their K-League title this year, having won it in the last three seasons.
They are second in the South Korean top-flight standings with 26 points after 12 games and three points behind leaders Ulsan.
