Celtic Hope To Beat Spurs, Everton, Wolves & Cardiff City To Signing Of Nigerian Goal MachinePublished: January 16, 2019
Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are working on a deal to sign prolific Nigerian striker Josh Maja, according to reports.
The Scottish Sun is reporting that Celtic are keen on signing the Sunderland star with defender Jack Hendry moving on loan to the Black Cats as part of the deal.
Maja has entered the final six months of his contract with the League One club and has yet to pen a new deal on the advice of his agent.
A plethora of teams in the Premier League and Germany are reportedly keeping tabs on the former Super Eagles invitee, who has notched 15 goals this season and was the highest scoring teenager in England's top four divisions in December prior to his 20th birthday.
Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City have all been credited with an interest in Maja.
The London-born young star previously played for the youth teams of Crystal Palace, Fulham and Manchester City.
