Josh Maja will finally extend with Bordeaux

Turnaround in the Josh Maja case. While his representatives had so far ruled out the idea of ​​an extension with a pay cut, the striker will finally extend his contract which initially expired in a year. He will now be linked to the Girondins until 2024 with an automatic option of an additional season in the event of a rise in L1.

While the formalization of his extension should only take place at the beginning of next week, Maja’s desire to continue the adventure in Gironde and to help the club has apparently made the difference: the former player of Sunderland – whose emoluments are estimated at more than 100,000 euros gross per month – would have agreed to divide his salary by two. He shouldn’t be the only Bordeaux player to make a financial effort to allow the Girondins to reduce their payroll: Danylo Ignatenko and Fransergio could also sign an amendment to their contract in the coming days with a pay cut of at least 20%.

Kapacak on the shelves of the Girondins

Despite the departures of M’Baye Niang (Auxerre), Edson Mexer (Estoril) and Hwang Ui-jo (Nottingham who immediately loaned him to Olympiakos), Bordeaux is still unable to approve the contracts of its four recruits currently in the waiting room (Jonas Lössl, Yoann Barbet, Vital Nsimba and Clément Michelin). This does not prevent the Bordeaux club from continuing to work on other reinforcements: already tracked last year, Fenerbahçe winger Burak Kapacak is still high on the shelves of the Girondins. Interested in Dilane Bakwa, the Turkish club has tried to include its 22-year-old player in the operation but has so far been refused by Bordeaux leaders.

Regarding a possible departure of Junior Onana at AC Milan, the discussions are skating. The rossonero club only offers a paid loan with an option to buy. A formula that does not suit the Girondins. La Spezia, Monza and Cremonese remain attentive to the situation of the Cameroonian international but no written offer has been made for the moment.
