MK Dons have completed the signing of Peterborough United striker Mo Eisa for an undisclosed fee, as per the club’s website.
The 27-year-old is the seventh new arrival at Stadium MK this summer as manager Russell Martin looks to re-shape his squad following the departures of Cameron Jerome, Scott Fraser and Matthew Sorinola.
Eisa has signed a long-term contract with the Buckinghamshire club after falling out of favour at Peterborough during their successful promotion push last season.
The Sudanese forward had previously enjoyed a 25-goal season with Cheltenham Town in League Two that helped to secure a 2018 move to Bristol City. With appearances limited at Ashton Gate, Eisa joined Posh and scored 16 times in his first season at the club.
The form of Sammie Szmodics, Siriki Dembele and Jonson Clarke-Harris saw his game time reduced in the 2020/21 campaign, but Eisa is looking forward to a fresh start.
He said: “This is a massive club with huge ambitions that match my own, and I will give my all to help take MK Dons forward.
“I knew there was interest from back in January and then again this summer. My agent presented me with a few teams who wanted to sign me and I felt MK Dons was the right team for me.
“I am very excited to work under Russell Martin, as he was a huge influence in me making my decision to join the Dons. I’m looking forward to the style of play as I feel it plays to my strengths and will give me the opportunity to score goals.
“I am a goal scorer but most importantly I am a team player and I always try to do my best for the team to win.”
With Scott Twine, Ethan Robson and Max Watters already at the club, MK Dons have continued a trend of securing some of the standout performers in League Two over the past few seasons.
Eisa has also experienced success in the third tier, and with Cameron Jerome and Will Grigg departing Stadium MK in the summer, he should have plenty of game time to replicate it under Russell Martin.
The new signing name-checking Martin as an important reason for signing is yet another example of the exciting project being built by the former Norwich defender, and MK’s commitment to attacking football should provide the former Peterborough man with plenty of goalscoring chances.
This looks to be another signing that could help MK Dons build on last season’s mid-table finish.
