Report: Sunderland agree to sign Cameron McCulloch and Josh Maja

Sunderland have reportedly agreed deals to sign former Manchester City youngsters Cameron McCulloch and Josh Maja.

According to the Daily Mail, Sunderland have agreed deals to sign teenagers Cameron McCulloch and Josh Maja, both of whom have links to Manchester City.

The Black Cats are still hovering precariously above the relegation zone, but appear to be keen on moulding their squad of the future.

The Daily Mail believe that Sunderland have already agreed deals to sign goalkeeper McCulloch and strikers Maja, both of whom are teenagers.

McCulloch, 16, was on the books with Liverpool before joining Manchester City, and has recently been on trial with Sunderland in a bid to win a contract.

It now seems that he could be joined at the Stadium of Light by another former City youngsters, with striker Maja also on the way.

The England youth international forward has been playing for Sunderland's Under-16 side, and with City not willing to offer him a permanent deal after a move from Fulham, he is now set for a deal with Sunderland.

Sunderland's youth system hasn't really provided the first team with as many top prospects as they would have liked in recent years, but these two arrivals will hopefully improve the first team in the coming years.
