Sunderland: Former Black Cats striker Josh Maja closing in on Rangers move

Sunderland: Former Black Cats striker Josh Maja closing in on Rangers move - Sunderland News

Former Sunderland striker Josh Maja looks set to open talks with Scottish Premiership side Rangers over a potential summer move.

After spending time with the likes of Fulham, Crystal Palace and Manchester City during his youth career, Nigerian centre-forward Maja made an instant impression at the Stadium of Light after making his debut in September 2016.

After a successful full first season at the club, the youngster left in January 2019 for a move to French top-tier side Bordeaux.

Six goals and two assists during the 2019/2020 season has seen the 21-year-old maintain his reputation and Rangers are now said to be interested in the striker.

Steven Gerrard’s side reportedly keen to bring in Maja as they look to find a replacement for Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos, who has agreed personal terms with Lille.

A potential move to the Scottish Premiership side has also been mooted due to the striker’s representatives Elite Project Group who work as agents for current Rangers duo Joe Aribo and Sheyi Ojo.

Maja’s potential return to British football will serve as a reminder to Sunderland fans of his exit, something which was highly documented via Netflix series Sunderland Til I Die.

Whilst Maja was always destined to go on and move elsewhere, one can’t help but wonder how much Phil Parkinson could do with him now as the Black Cats remain in League One.
