From SCEFL to the Championship – Eisa moves to City

Bristol City have completed the signing of Mo Eisa from Cheltenham Town for an undisclosed fee.

The striker has agreed terms on a three-year deal at Ashton Gate, with the option of a further 12 months. The transfer is rumoured to be around £1.5m

Eisa attracted interest from several clubs over the summer, having netted 25 goals in 50 appearances for the League Two outfit last season.

However, the 24-year-old opted for a move south to Bristol City and their chief executive Mark Ashton said: “We are thrilled to have signed Mo. He was in superb form in the last campaign and we hope he can make another step up in the football ladder.

“He is tall, athletic, a proven finisher and we believe he can become even better with the help of our coaching infrastructure.”

Eisa was playing for Greenwich Borough in the Southern Counties East Football League three years ago before signing his first professional contract at Whaddon Road last summer and going on to land Cheltenham Town’s Player of the Year award.

Now he cannot wait to showcase his talent in the Sky Bet Championship, exclusively telling BCTV: “I am very excited. I can’t wait to get started. It’s a massive club with a large fanbase and I want to do as well as I can for the team.

“I will get my head down, work hard and see where we can finish. I want us to get promoted, although I won’t get carried away.

“I had a good season for Cheltenham last year, the best of my career. I have to thank the club because without them I wouldn’t be here.”

Best of luck to Mo as there is nothing I like hearing more than of a Non League player making it on the big stage.
