Newcastle United are ahead in the race to sign Leicester City player James Maddison, despite competition from Tottenham.
Despite Leicester’s decline last season, Maddison still scored 10 goals and provided 9 assists in the Premier League. After the “Fox” were relegated, the player born in 1996 was determined to leave. The King Power Stadium team admitted that they could not keep the British conductor.
Newcastle wanted to sign James Maddison in January, but Leicester refused to listen to offers, because they felt the midfielder could help the “Foxs” successfully stay relegated. Leicester’s wish did not come true, Maddison was still playing well and they were relegated.
The English player’s contract with Leicester has only 12 months left, he refused to extend it to leave. Now the King Power Stadium team will be forced to negotiate with partners, if they do not want to lose the English player in the summer of 2024.
