Josh Maja attracting interest from across Europe, but could yet remain at Bordeaux

Girondins de Bordeaux striker Josh Maja (24), whose contract at the Ligue 2 club expires at the end of the season, possesses a contract offer from La Liga side Real Valladolid, according to Foot Mercato.

Maja, who has had loan spells at Stoke City and at Fulham, will seemingly have plenty of options this summer. Maja is Bordeaux’s top scorer in all competitions this season, with 14 goals in 34 games. Whilst his form could potentially allow Les Girondins to bounce back from last year’s relegation, his future may not lie at the French club. 

Foot Mercato are reporting that Ligue 1 and English sides are already displaying an interest in Maja, who would be available for free come the summer. Meanwhile, La Liga side Real Valladolid, who are fighting for their survival in Spain’s top-flight, have made the player an offer. 

However, Maja’s future will likely be determined by the outcome of Bordeaux’s season. The club are currently second in Ligue 2, one point of FC Metz, which would be enough to see David Guion’s side promoted. Should Bordeaux maintain their second place and move back up into Ligue 1, Maja would trigger an automatic extension. The Nigerian international’s club future, therefore, doesn’t look set to be resolved any time soon.
