TRANSFER LATEST: Mo Eisa’s move to Sunderland looks like it is OFF - and here’s why

New, comments

Mo Eisa is headed just 30 miles from Cheltenham to nearby Championship club Bristol City after Sunderland pulled out of the running.

Sunderland are set to miss out on Cheltenham Town’s Mohamed Eisa after his club accepted an offer from Bristol City for the striker.

Jack Ross had hoped to sign the 24-year-old and had hoped a bid of £1.25m would be enough to sign the player, but with the financial aspect of the deal pushing past £2m when add-ons are included, it priced Sunderland - and League One rivals Portsmouth - out of the race.

Although we have missed out on Eisa, the club is confident of signing a Championship striker that they’ve had interest in for weeks, and there is still interest in Bradford City’s Charlie Wyke but that deal has been complicated somewhat due to the player picking up an injury in their last pre-season friendly.
