England international James Maddison is in talks with Leicester City over an improved contract according to a report by the Sun.
They report that Maddison has over three years left on his current deal, worth £50,000-a-week, but talks have already begun over improved terms.
Maddison made his England debut in the 7-0 thumping of Montenegro last week and apparently has transfer interest from the likes of Manchester United.
And those factors have apparently combined to create the conditions where Leicester have sounded out the playmaker’s representatives over offering improved terms to reflect his status as one of the hottest young players in the Premier League.
TBR’s View – Maddison likely best served remaining at Leicester
Harry Maguire’s move from Leicester to Manchester United has not been an unqualified success and hasn’t enhanced his standing considerably yet.
No attacking player has improved their reputation at Old Trafford for quite some time and United don’t even have a clear style of play for Maddison to establish himself in.
Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester are at present a more attractive proposition than United – and his progression only looks set to improve under the Northern Irishman.
