Bristol City boss confirms bids are in for Mo Eisa

Bristol City manager Lee Jonson has confirmed the club has received bids for former Cheltenham Town striker Mo Eisa.

It wouldn’t be a transfer window without speculation on the future of Eisa who joined Bristol City from Cheltenham Town in a deal thought to be worth in total £1.5m during the summer of 2018.

The lucrative move up two tiers of the football pyramid followed a club record twenty-three goal season for League Two Cheltenham after joining from non-league Greenwich Borough.

It now seems Eisa might be set to leave Bristol with City manager Lee Johnson telling BBC Radio Bristol, ‘There have been bids in for Mo.’

‘We’ll have to make a decision as a club. I do believe in Mo’s talents.’

‘There’s a lot of interest in our players at the top end and bottom end. It’s not definite that he’s going to leave.’

‘If we don’t see Mo as our twenty-five-goal striker it might be right to let him move on with a handshake.’

It was reported Bristol City beat Portsmouth, Sunderland and Peterborough to land the signature of the sought striker last year.

However, it appears it hasn’t worked out for Eisa at Ashton Gate with the twenty-four-year-old making only five substitute appearances and one start in a season hampered by an injury he picked up in training.

Speculation will now intensify as to his likely destination and whether it will be a loan or permanent switch.

Our View

Sometimes a move does not work, and that would appear to be the case with Eisa at Bristol City.

Many feel he is a forgotten man at Bristol and a move would surely kick start his career.

League One is the most likely destination although it wouldn’t surprise me if there is League Two interest from some of the division’s big spenders. 

There is likely to be several bids in for the frontman, and it wouldn’t be a shock if he ended up at a club that missed out on him last year, possibly Peterborough.
