Newcastle United Challenge Crystal Palace For Nigerian Goalscoring SensationPublished: January 05, 2019
Newcastle United have joined the battle for Nigerian goalscoring sensation Josh Maja, according to reports.
Sunderland are prepared to sell the former Super Eagles invitee this month as he has refused to sign a new deal, with the deadline expiring on Friday.
The Daily Mail says Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield are among the teams in England monitoring his situation.
Maja has put himself in the shop window courtesy of his 15 goals across all competitions for Sunderland so far this season.
As first suggested by allnigeriasoccer.com, Maja is valued in the region of five million pounds and Newcastle United are looking to sign him for that amount.
Despite speculation linking him with an exit from the Stadium of Light, the number 20 has been named in the starting line-up for this afternoon's League One match against Charlton Athletic.
