Leicester City Urged To Make Move For Tottenham & Man City-Linked Nigerian Wonderkid
Former Premier League champions Leicester City have been urged to make a move for Sunderland's Nigerian wonderkid Josh Maja by Leicester Mercury.

With 11 goals in 19 League One appearances, Maja is the leading teenage goalscorer in the top four divisions of English football and has been linked with a departure from the Black Cats in the January transfer window.

The likes of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have been credited with an interest in the 19-year-old and The Foxes have been encouraged to join the race for his signature.

On Maja, Matt Davies wrote : ''The 19-year-old has been brilliant for Sunderland, scoring 11 goals this season.

''He is out of contract in the summer, meaning he would also be available at a bargain price.

''With that in mind a raft of Championship clubs, including Bristol City and Middlesbrough, are said to have shown an interest, as have Premier League giants Tottenham and Manchester City.''

Maja visited the Super Eagles at their get-together in London in March 2017 but could not train with the team ahead of a proposed friendly against Burkina Faso as a result of club commitments.
