Report: Celtic Keen On 14-Goal Sunderland Striker

Celtic are reportedly keen on bringing Sunderland striker Josh Maja to the Scottish Premiership.

According to the Scottish Sun, Celtic have joined a number of clubs looking at the 20-year-old.

Maja has scored 14 times in League One this season for a Sunderland side currently third in the table and five points behind leaders Portsmouth.

London-born, Maja recently turned down the offer of a new long-term contract from Sunderland. Club owner Stewart Donald tweeted earlier this month about what he saw as a lack of courtesy from Maja and his adviser.

Maja is out of contract this summer and could join Celtic for what would be minimal compensation.

Several Premier League clubs, including Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Manchester City have also been linked with Maja, as have sides in Germany.

It is also said that Celtic players Jack Hendry and Lewis Morgan could move to Sunderland on loan as part of a deal for Maja.
