Selling Josh Maja for just £1.5 million will be bitter blow for Sunderland

Sunderland appear set to lose striker Josh Maja. The club’s top-scorer this season is out of contract in the summer and there is a growing fear they will lose him for next to nothing. With that in mind, according to The Mirror, he is being offered to clubs for a fee in the region of £1.5 million. Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are two teams reportedly keen on the player at such a reduced cost.

It is certainly a big drop from a month ago. Back then, The Mirror was suggesting that Sunderland would be looking for figures in the region of £6 million for the player.

That is a drop off of £4.5 million in valuation that surely indicates Sunderland’s admission that Maja will not be signing a new deal at the Stadium of Light.

It is a massive blow to the club. Maja has been in great form this season. His 12 goals in 19 games make him one of the most lethal marksmen in League One this season.

Now it appears the Black Cats are going to need to sell him at a price well below his obvious value.
