Super Eagles striker Josh Maja has rejected a return to England, where English Championship side Birmingham City have offered him a five-year contract.
Instead Maja has opted to sign a new two-year contract with financially-troubled French club Bordeaux, who were relegated from Ligue 1 last season.
“Josh Maja’s move to Birmingham has just collapsed. He decided to stay at Bordeaux for one more season and sign new two-year deal with 50% wage deferral, which will be paid to him in June,” reported transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
“New deal includes option to leave for free if team will not be promoted.”
Originally, Maja was to join Birmingham City this transfer window, which meant he would have flown out to England last night and then undergo his medical this morning.
