Maddison signs new four-year Leicester contract
James Maddison has signed a new four-year contract with Leicester, ending speculation linking him with a move away from the club.
Manchester United were among the sides to have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old England international, who joined the Foxes from Norwich in 2018.
Maddison has played 76 times for Leicester in all competitions since then, scoring 16 goals and registering 10 assists.
Maddison told the club’s official website: “I’m so happy to sign a new contract for this football club. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a Leicester City player with so many positive things happening on and off the pitch and I’m delighted to be part of that.
“What we’ve achieved as a club this season is a huge step forward for us and I know there’s so much more to come from this team.
“I’ve enjoyed every moment since joining Leicester City. The supporters have been incredible to me and we’ve a fantastic set of players in that dressing room who are determined to show what we’re capable of doing together in both Europe and the Premier League next season.”
Maddison was signed after a hugely impressive spell with Norwich in the Championship, and he has emerged as one of England’s most exciting young midfielders since making the step up to the Premier League.
He was rewarded for his good form with a first senior international appearance in November last year, though the corona virus pandemic has so far prevented him from adding to his first England cap.
