Maja’s contract at Bordeaux has expired, and it seems like he may be making a return to England. Birmingham City, an English Championship club, is reportedly interested in signing the Super Eagles striker who is currently a free agent.
Last season, Maja had an impressive campaign with Bordeaux, scoring 17 goals in 40 appearances. Unfortunately, his goals were not enough to help Les Girondins gain promotion to Ligue 1. As a result, Maja left the club as his contract came to an end. If Bordeaux had gained promotion, his stay could have been extended for another year, but now he is free to explore other options.
Now a free agent, the 24-year-old striker is rumored to be considering a return to England. According to Sport Witness, Birmingham City is keen on securing Maja’s signature this summer. However, there have also been rumors linking him to former Scottish champions, Rangers, although no deal has been finalized yet.
Acquiring Maja could be challenging for Birmingham City as they cannot offer him top-tier football at the moment. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if the club can convince him to join their ranks.
Maja began his football journey at the Manchester City Academy before moving to the Sunderland Academy. This background may add an interesting dynamic to his potential return to England.
In conclusion, Maja’s contract expiration at Bordeaux has opened up new possibilities for him, and Birmingham City is one of the clubs interested in signing him. While there are talks of a potential move to Rangers, nothing has been confirmed yet. It will be interesting to see where Maja ends up and how his career progresses from here.
