Shrewsbury Town winger Abo Eisa is set to sign for League Two side Scunthorpe United according to Grimsby Live.
The Iron boss Paul Hurst is keen to add to his attacking options after a poor start to their campaign, and the report claims he’s made a breakthrough in negotiations with Salop. Hurst signed Eisa for an undisclosed fee from non-league Wealdstone during his spell as manager of the Shropshire outfit and worked with him for six months prior his ill-fated move to Ipswich Town.
Eisa has struggled to find his feet for the Shrews, and after making just fourteen appearances, he was sent out on loan to Colchester in the second half of last season. He managed two goals in fourteen outings for the U’s as they just missed out on the League Two playoffs.
Grimsby Live understands the twenty-three-year-old will sign a permanent deal at Glanford Park and suggest he may be a replacement for Adam Hamill, with speculation continuing to link the experienced winger with a move back to League One.
Eisa impressed at Colchester last season, and League Two might be the level he prospers.
Would be a good signing for the Iron who have looked short of attacking ideas so far this season.
Hurst knows him, and the Iron boss will need some loyal troops in what could be a tough campaign for Scunthorpe.
The potential signing will no doubt delight and concern Iron fans at the same time as it could mean the end of Hamill’s Scunthorpe career.
