Mo Eisa linked with January loan switch

Bristol City striker Mo Eisa has been linked with a loan move back to League Two this summer in a bid to get himself match fit and firing again.

Eisa has made just five appearances for the Robins, the most recent of which came a fortnight ago as a last-minute sub against Millwall. His season has been disrupted by injury, by now he’s fit and raring to go it would appear that he’s some way off the level expected by Lee Johnson.

Eisa scored 23 times in 45 matches for Cheltenham last season before being sold by Gary Johnson to son Lee Johnson for £1.5m in the summer.

However, he’s not made an impact at Ashton Gate, resulting in the current speculation.

He’s unlikely to be loaned back to Cheltenham, Lee can’t do his father a favour after he was sacked not long after selling Eisa. There would still be a host of clubs willing to take the striker on, even some in League One would be more than happy to give him a chance.

Our View

We can’t see it being just League Two clubs involved in the hunt if a loan deal is going down. It’s a shame for Bristol Rovers, they’re the ideal place for him, were it not for the whole rivalry thing!

Forest Green are being mentioned as a possible destination, as are Mansfield Town, but if he is available expect more clubs in the third tier to throw their hat in the ring for the 24-year old former Greenwich man.
