HYS: Can Sunderland keep hold of Josh Maja?

Sunderland’s season is going to plan so far in that they are well within a chance of returning to the Championship.

The North-East outfit currently sit second in League One, two points adrift of leaders Portsmouth after 17 matches.

One of the main reasons that the Black Cats find themselves in a positive position is because of the goals produced by Josh Maja.

The 19-year-old moved to the Stadium of Light from Fulham in 2015, and this season in particular he has shone.

In total, the 5ft 11in attacker has made 18 first-team appearances, and all 10 of his goals have been scored in league matches.

It is no surprise, then, that the forward’s form has attracted the attention of other clubs.

According to BristolLive, scouts have been sent by Bristol City to keep close tabs on Maja and his performances.

If the youngster continues in this form, many other clubs will soon start knocking on the door.

With that in mind, will Sunderland be able to keep hold of him?
