Nigerian star linked with move to Bundesliga as he turns down Premier League offers

Nigerian star linked with move to Bundesliga as he turns down Premier League offers

14 Jan 2019, 11:40

Sunderland striker Josh Maja is reportedly tipped for a move to the German Bundesliga as he looks to turn down Premier League offers. 

According to English media reports, the former Super Eagles star is on the brink of signing a deal with an unnamed club in Germany that could see him earn 20,000 pounds per week which is reportedly four times more than his current wages at Sunderland. 

Tottenham Hotspurs, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City have been reported as the Premier League interested in Maja's signature.

The 20-year-old striker is currently represented by Elite Project Group Agency, who brokered the deals that took Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson to Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.

Chima Okoroji (Freiburg), Keanan Bennetts (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Mandela Egbo (Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Osayamen Osawe (FC Ingolstadt) play for German clubs though they hold Nigerian and English citizenship.

Maja was sidelined from the Sunderland squad held to a 1-1 draw by Luton Town this past weekend due to a stomach bug.
