We take a close look and offer some encouragement that Sunderland can keep a hold of their prized asset.

Maja spoke about his Sunderland breakthrough in September and crucially, said that he would be happy to extend his stay at the club.

“All I’m focused on is getting the club back to where it should be and that is the Premier League. This season is a big year for us, we want promotion, to win the league. If we stick together we can do that.

“I know he is enjoying it. He is playing and contributing. He is only young. To get 11 goals so far, he deserves huge credit.”

“I think the goals have shown the manager and the club what I can do. As long as I stay grounded and humble, working hard, then more opportunities will come my way.”

Tottenham and Manchester City are among the clubs taking an interest in Sunderland star Josh Maja, according to the latest reports.

Jerome Sinclair has added extra competition for his place (as Charlie Wyke will in the coming months) but Maja has continued to get regular minutes and his goalscoring has gone from strength to strength.

The report from the Mirror suggests that the Wearside club would find a £6million bid too difficult to turn down come January.
