Nigeria forward, Josh Maja has turned down a move to Sky Bet Championship club, Birmingham City.

Birmingham City were on the verge of sealing a deal for Maja on Wednesday, with the forward set to pen a five-year contract.

But the Nigerian has now opted to stay with his French club, Girondins Bordeaux, according to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.

The 23-year-old will now sign a two-year extension at Bordeaux which will see him paid 50% of his wages next June.

The striker can also leave on a free should Girondins Bordeaux fail to secure promotion to the Ligue 1.

Maja joined Bordeaux from Sunderland in 2019.

He has also spent time on loan at Fulham and Stoke City.
