Sky Bet League One club Charlton Athletic failed with an attempt to land out of favour Bristol City striker Mo Eisa on loan during the January transfer window according to reports by Bristol Live.

The 24-year-old Sudanese frontman has made just a handful of first team appearances for The Robins so far this season after joining the club last summer.

It has been reported that Bristol City boss Lee Johnson was keen to send Eisa out on loan to allow him to experience more regular first team football and it has now been confirmed that third tier outfit Charlton Athletic were keen to acquire the player’s services for the remainder of the current campaign.

It is believed that The Addicks boss Lee Bowyer held talks with Bristol City over a loan deal for the forward but The Robins could not sanction a move due to a shortage of firepower at manager Johnson’s disposal at Ashton Gate.

Following a prolific spell in non-league football with Greenwich Borough, Eisa spent a year with Sky Bet League Two club Cheltenham Town when he bagged a sensational 25 goals in just 50 games. The Robins were keen to retain the player’s services beyond his initial 12-month deal but Eisa instead opted to test himself in the Sky Bet Championship with current club Bristol City.
