There has been much speculation about the future of Josh Maja at Sunderland with a number of clubs reportedly interested in a deal to sign the promising youngster.
Sunderland owner, Stewart Donald has provided supporters with an important update on his future, and claimed that Maja wants to sign a new deal with the Black Cats, but has had interference from his agent.
@SunderlandAFC Josh Maja update. Yesterday Josh asked to see Jack to say he will sign. Today I got a call from Sky TV saying he won't sign. Josh advised his agent has said don't sign but no courtesy to tell the club – Also we offered what the agent indicated!!! Busy January ahead

It will come as no surprise to see Maja attracting interest as he has played a crucial role in the Sunderland team that challenges for an immediate return to the Championship.
The 20-year-old forward has 13 league goals to his name this season, and Sunderland will surely do everything they can to hold on to him.
After breaking through from the under 23’s side, not many would have predicted that Maja could have made such a significant impact.
But who should Sunderland be targeting if Maja departs this month?
