Ligue 1 side Bordeaux have agreed a deal with Sunderland for striker Josh Maja, as reported by The72 earlier today.

The 20-year-old has been the subject of fierce interest from clubs higher up in England, Scotland and in Germany, but he is now set for a switch to France.

Maja has been in prolific form for Sunderland in League One this season and has scored 15 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

He made his league debut for the Black Cats last season and came off the bench to score again Fulham. That was his only goal of the last campaign but he has established himself as a key player for the North-East side this season and has adapted well to the third tier.

Sunderland have resigned to losing him this month and will now be looking for potential replacements. They have been linked with Wigan Athletic’s Will Grigg as well as Reading’s Marc McNulty over recent weeks.

The North-East side will be disappointed to see Maja leave but will no doubt wish him luck for his venture in France.

Here is how the Sunderland fans have reacted on Twitter to Bordeaux agreeing a deal for him today-
