Transfer: Girondis Bordeaux keen to keep Maja

French Ligue 2 club, Girondis Bordeaux are not willing to allow Josh Maja to leave for another club.

Maja became a free agent after his contract with Les Girondis expired last week Friday.

The former French Ligue 1 champions are, however, desperate to tie the Nigerian to a new contract.

“We had discussions,” Club president Gerard Lopez told France Bleu, via Girondis4ever.

“We really like Josh, he was also important during the season. He is a player who has opportunities elsewhere,”

Maja scored 16 goals in 38 league games for Bordeaux last season.

The 24-year-old joined the club from Sunderland in January 2019.
