Eisa vow after City move

Mo Eisa has vowed to “put his head down and work hard” after his dream move to City.

The striker took a look around Ashton Gate excitedly after completing a transfer from League Two Cheltenham Town to become City’s sixth summer signing.

The 24-year-old signed his first professional contract at Whaddon Road last summer and in his debut season scored 25 goals in all competitions.

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.”

Eisa was playing non-league football with Greenwich Borough just over 12 months ago, and he is relishing the opportunity to compete in the second tier of English football.

“I am excited to playing in the Championship – I think it’s the next step,” he continued.

“I believe I can handle it, there’s a lot of hard work ahead but I believe in myself and the gaffer obviously does because he’s brought me here. I am thrilled with the move.”
