Maddison came through the ranks at Coventry before joining Norwich for a reported £2.4million in 2016.

Two-and-a-half years later, Maddison linked up with Leicester for a reported £22.5million.

Maddison has since made 118 appearances for the Foxes, claiming 27 goals and 20 assists for the club.

Maddison has also won one England cap, and his omission from the Euro 2020 squad proved contentious.
