Bristol Rovers could launch swoop for striker in the summer

Bristol Rovers could still move for Isaac Vassell this summer, as per a report by BristolLive.

Bristol Rovers have let the striker train with them over recent times to help build up his fitness levels.

Vassell, 30, cut ties with Cardiff City in the summer of 2022 and has since been a free agent.

He has recently signed for non-league side Bath City but the Gas will keep tabs on his progress. The Gas’ boss Matt Taylor has said, as per BristolLive: “It suited everyone for him to move to Bath. It’s not even a move but just signing for Bath and hopefully getting some proper game time.

“I think he came on on Tuesday night and Jamie McAllister was at the game but having not played for four years, it’s going to be 10 minutes, 15 minutes. We’ve got to build it and then we can start to assess him and see if there are any opportunities with ourselves for the future.”

Bristol Rovers plan

Bristol Rovers have a big summer ahead as Taylor looks to put his own stamp on the squad.

Vassell would be a risk-free addition on a free and would provide them with more competition and depth up top in League One.

If he can keep fit he could prove to be a shrewd signing for them next term, assuming he can hit the ground running at Bath between now and the end of the campaign.

Vassell rose up through the ranks at Plymouth Argyle and played 10 times for their first-team, as well as having loan spells away from Home Park with the likes of Weymouth and Truro City.

He then joined the latter on a permanent basis before Luton Town snapped him up in 2016.

The forward spent two years with the Hatters when they were in League Two and scored 16 goals in 55 games to land a switch to Birmingham City.

Cardiff City acquired him a couple of years later but his time in Wales was impacted by injury problems. He played only three times for the Bluebirds before they made the decision to release him.

Bristol Rovers have let him train with them recently and they are back in action this weekend with an away trip to Leyton Orient.
