According to a recent report by The Telegraph, Leicester City playmaker James Maddison is close to agreeing on a new contract at the King Power Stadium. The same source has also revealed that the Foxes are set to agree on a lucrative long-term deal with the English midfielder, and the talks between the player and the club are currently at an advanced stage.
Maddison’s Excellent Form In The English Top-Flight So Far
This latest development will be a welcome bit of news for anyone associated with the East Midlands outfit heading into the mid-season break. Brendan Rodgers has managed to get the best out of his players at the King Power which has seen Leicester climb to the third spot in the Premier League table.
Maddison has mostly been at the heart of every good move the Foxes have conjured up going forward throughout this campaign. The 23-year-old has enjoyed another outstanding campaign in the Premier League after he put in several dazzling displays for the Foxes so far.
The 23-year-old has scored nine goals and provided three assists in 30 appearances for Rodgers’ side this term across all competitions. He has averaged 1.9 tackles, 2.4 shots, 2.7 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per game in the English first division (stats via whoscored).
What Does The Leicester City Starlet Offer On The Field?
Maddison is a deceptively quick midfielder who can also operate down the left flank if required. He excels at making decent opportunities for others around him and is also a potent goal-threat from long range. The English prospect has also improved his qualities as a dead-ball specialist and can work his socks off for the benefit of his team.
Maddison Set To Pen New Deal: Huge Boost For The Foxes?
There is no doubt that Maddison has the potential to become a household name in European football. Therefore, tieing him up on a long-term contract could prove to be a massive coup for the Foxes and their long-term aspirations as a football club.
The Coventry-born talent has been the centre-piece in Rodgers’ recent revolution at the King Power Stadium. It was essential for the East Midlands side to secure his long-term future so that they can fend off interest from other clubs in the future.
