Newcastle fans want to sign Maja after contract update

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to some big Sunderland news, as Black Cats starlet Josh Maja is believed to have turned down the club’s final contract offer.

With 14 League One goals, Maja is one of the hottest prospects in the English Football League right now, and Sunderland could soon face the perilous prospect of losing him for free.

The 20 year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the season, and he has now told the club he will not sign their latest extension offer, according to Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie.

The report from Downie claims the club offered Maja seven times his current wages, which perhaps implies he’s got bigger and better plans on his mind.

Lots of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the news, with some joking they should buy him just to loan him to League One promotion favourites Portsmouth, while others eye a genuine deal to bring the youngster to Tyneside.

Either way, you can find some of best Twitter reactions down below…
