League Two side Cheltenham Town are eyeing a loan move for Bristol City striker Shawn McCoulsky, according to Gloucestershire Live. 

The forward spent last season on loan at fellow League Two club Newport County, where he scored ten goals for the Welsh side.

He has yet to make a first team appearance in the league for the Robins, and Lee Johnson clearly feels that another loan move would be beneficial for the 21 year old.

If Cheltenham could complete a loan deal for McCoulsky, it would be the strikers sixth loan move away from Ashton Gate.

Gary Johnson’s side had a frustrating season in the fourth tier last campaign, as they finished seventeenth in League Two.

Town have also recently lost last season’s top scorer Mo Eisa to Bristol City in a move which is rumoured to be around the £1.2m mark.

That move can now pave the way for McCoulsky to move in the opposite direction.

McCoulsky scored a memorable goal for Newport in the third round of the FA Cup last campaign, as he headed in a 89th minute winner against Leeds United in a 2-1 victory at Rodney Parade.

It is thought that Doncaster Rovers are also interested in signing the striker, but Whaddon Road looks to be the likely destination for the Bristol City man.

Apart from Eisa, nobody in a Cheltenham shirt hit double figures in terms of goals last campaign.

Johnson will be hoping that the former Bath City loanee can fill the void left by last seasons talisman.
