Right-winger Modou Barrow has received the worst rating out of all the Leeds players to feature in the 2016-17 campaign, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The local news outlet conducted a feature on their website, asking fans to give each player who had played in more than three appearances last season a rating between ‘very poor’ and ‘excellent.’

A number of Leeds players impressed in the seventh placed finish and while leading goalscorer Chris Wood led the ratings with a 9.75 rating from fans it was January loanee Barrow who brought up the rear with a rating of just 2.5.

The 24-year-old right-winger made the temporary switch to Leeds from Premier League side Swansea in the winter window as then manager Garry Monk looked for players who he felt could help them over the promotion finish line.

However, Barrow ended up playing just five times for Leeds in the league, making only one start and it was ultimately an unsuccessful move for the pacey attacker.

Fellow Swansea loanee Matt Grimes finished just ahead of him with a rating of 2.7, while defender Sol Bamba finished in 23rd place with a rating of 3.1 after quitting the club as captain in September.

The worst rating for a player still remaining at Leeds was received by last summer’s striker signing Marcus Antonsson with a rating of 4.3, which saw him place in 22nd after bagging just three goals in 21 appearances in all competitions.

Meanwhile, successful loan duo Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson made up the top three alongside Wood with ratings of 9.45 and 9.3 respectively.
