According to Guardian Sport writer Ed Aarons, Manchester City, Huddersfield and Crystal Palace are all interested in signing Sunderland top-scorer Josh Maja after his agent tells the player to snub a new contract.

This afternoon, Sunderland owner Stewart Donald has tweeted an interesting update from his account about the current situation, regarding Josh Maja:

Maja has been in brilliant form for Sunderland this season, scoring 14 goals in 23 games in League One this season – and is beginning to attract interest from both the Premier League and overseas as a result of his goalscoring form for the Black Cats.

The 20-year-old looks to be a really exciting young prospect and would certainly be a great addition to Huddersfield Town, who appear to be severely lacking in goals in the Premier League this season.

If a Premier League club is to come calling, it may be unlikely that Sunderland will be able to hold onto one of their most prized assets – and if he has turned down the option to extend his contract, Sunderland may be keen to cash in on the striker as quickly as possible.

It’s going to be a nervous few weeks for Sunderland fans, that’s for sure.
