Sunderland striker Josh Maja looks like he’s closing in on a move to France after intense speculation over his future in recent weeks.

Sky Sports reporter Kieth Downey claims French side Bordeaux have launched a bid for the soon to be out of contract star which would see Maja move away from the Stadium of Light this month.

Celtic have been linked with the forward for some time. Maja’s contract runs out at the end of the season and it was thought the Bhoy’s could be in the running to sign the player up on a pre-contract.

However, the player looks set to take a very different path and leave Jack Ross without a potent striker for the second half of Sunderland’s season.

Celtic already signed two strikers in this window but with Timo Weah only here for six months, it did make sense if the club were to sign the player and wait until the summer to get him in.

Right now, France looks like the striker’s next destination.


  1. I think this one was a striker that we would have got if other bids failed we may still be trying to get him but we may have put a bid in but went and got the players we wanted most,i hope a RB comes in and at end of season we can bring in a new CH as we have cover there for now,end of season clear out dead wood goes and some players that need game time go out on loan deals and hope they come back ready to play football and be part of the squad and be ready to do a job for there team….
