Bradford City have signed Scunthorpe forward Abo Eisa on a two-year deal.

The 25-year-old will join the Bantams as a free agent on 1 July after not being offered a new deal by the Iron at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Eisa, who was born in Sudan, scored 14 goals in 67 league appearances for the Glanford Park side.

"As soon as I came here and we knew he would be available, we moved quickly to try and sign him," boss Derek Adams told the club website.external-link

Meanwhile, Conor Sellars has declined the chance to remain at the club in an academy post, following the decision to stand him and Mark Trueman down as joint-head coaches last month.

While Trueman has remained as a first-team link coach, Sellars has decided to pursue new opportunities away from the Bantams.

"Having joined the club seven years ago, I have learnt an awful lot and progressed through many different roles," he said.

"I have had a fantastic time, and made some great memories, but I felt now was the time for me to try something new and ensure I develop further as much as possible - as an individual."
