Fulham weigh-up deadline day swoop for Bordeaux striker Josh Maja as Scott Parker targets loan move for former Sunderland frontman

  • Josh Maja shot to prominence with Sunderland before moving to Bordeaux 
  • Striker has just two goals in 17 appearances this season for Ligue 1 side  
  • Scott Parker wants to bolster attacking resources for his side with striker

Fulham are considering a deadline day move for Bordeaux striker Josh Maja.

The Cottagers have been looking to bring in a frontman on loan this window and Maja, formally of Sunderland, has emerged as an option.

Bordeaux confirmed the signing of Fulham midfielder Jean Michael-Seri for the remainder of the season on Saturday.

Josh Maja could move to Fulham on loan with Scott Parker wanting to strengthen up front

And the prospect of Maja, 22, heading the other way was raised during talks.

Maja joined the French club two years ago after an impressive start to the season for Sunderland, scoring 16 times before the end of January.

Maja proved equally clinical in his first full season in France last term, scoring eight times and setting up three more goals despite starting just eight times.

The remainder of his 24 appearances came off the bench.

And a lack of starts this season could see him move on temporarily to secure more regular game.

Maja impressed initially in France but has struggled for starts so far this season
