Maja Relishes Deadline Day Move To Fulham

The last-minute signing of Super Eagles striker, Josh Maja by Fulham from Bordeaux during the January transfer window may be regarded as a big coup by the Premier League side considering his goal-scoring prowess in Ligue 1.

The Nigerian international is not a stranger to top-flight football has been part of the Sunderland team from 2016-2019 before pitting tent with Bordeaux in order to gain more playing time.

The Cottagers signed Maja on a loan deal with the intention of making it permanent if he impresses Fulham manager, Scott Parker.

The Cottagers have been desperate to add a striker this month following Aleksandar Mitrovic’s struggles since promotion back to the Premier League, though manager Scott Parker was resigned to not adding one until a late change on deadline day.

Maja, who spent three years in Fulham’s academy from the age of 11, could become a permanent signing at the end of the season with an option thought to be worth around €10million (£8.8m).

The youngster, who is ready to hit the ground running with goals stated that he would take advantage of the rare opportunity given to him to make a big impression.

“I’m really excited and proud to sign for Fulham on loan for the remainder of the season,” said former Sunderland forward Maja.

“This is a big opportunity and I look forward to meeting up with the team and working hard to achieve positive results.”

However, Josh is expected to bring more goals for the team considering the fact that he’s a player that knows the back of the gal post like his palm.

In the 2019-20 season, the 21-year-old scored eight goals and provided three assists in 24 appearances across all competitions for the Girondins, amid other dazzling performances.

His speed and ability to take on players will also be a great advantage for the Fulham side as they hope to avoid relegation.

Barring an unforeseen injury, the Nigerian international will definitely be a force to reckon with in the Premier League this season.

    Why will another person progress be osihmens trouble? Are they playing in thesame club? The truth is if osihmen loses form as you are isinuating, the eagles will be in real trouble, just like the case of Ndidi or iwobi. These three are the present pillers of the team. The only hope that could be a capable replacement for osihmen is sadiq, the rest are below average to me, osihmen is no longer an odinary striker, he is a great footballer, in the category of the likes of suarez, cavani, lokaku etc, though he still need to work harder, but the sypthom of greatness is all over him, this kind of quality can also be identified in sadiq umar, another skillfull player with good ball control and great footworks and quality passes, resulting to uninmaginable solutions to goal scoring, a striker that him alone can make you win games even when he dont score goals, striker that assist morethan wingers and midfielders, i will love to see the combination of umar and vr9 in our attack, it will be like saurez cavanni, mboma eto, york and cole, kanu ikpeba.
