Official: Josh Maja Joins West Brom Albion From Bordeaux

Published

on

Albion are delighted to confirm the permanent signing of former Bordeaux striker Josh Maja.

The 24-year-old, who claimed 16 goals and six assists last season, has signed a three-year contract at The Hawthorns following a successful spell in south-west France.

London-born Maja made his professional debut for Sunderland in the Carabao Cup aged just 17, gaining experience in the Sky Bet Championship and League One while with the Black Cats.

An impressive 15 goals from 24 league matches in the first half of the 2018/19 campaign caught the eye of then-Ligue 1 Bordeaux, who he joined a month after his 20th birthday in January 2019.

Loans at Premier League Fulham and Championship Stoke City followed, prior to a return to the starting XI at the Matmut Atlantique.

Albion Head Coach, Carlos Corberán, said: “I am happy to have Josh here at the club. It was an important aim of ours to reinforce this position during the summer. We have done so with a player who has a big desire to succeed.

“Josh has international and Premier League experience and his skills compliment Brandon Thomas-Asante in a way which means they can play together or on their own. He drops deep to build attacks and also has good instincts in the box.

“Josh has been working hard while he has been a free agent this summer but will still need some time with our staff to make sure he is ready to face the challenge of games. We will work with him to manage this process.”

Head of Football Operations, Ian Pearce, added: “The club has been tracking Josh for some time and we are really pleased he is joining us.

“We have again had to be patient, but Josh is the striker we wanted, and his desire to play for Carlos helped us beat off significant competition from a number of other clubs.”
