Maddison to pen new Foxes deal?


England attacker James Maddison is reportedly prepared to snub advances from Manchester United in order to pen a new long-term deal with Leicester City.

The 22-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League and he has already amassed six goals from 13 appearances in all competitions.

As a result, there has recently been the speculation that United could make a big-money move for Maddison in either January or at end of the campaign but it appears that the playmaker is content to stay put with the Foxes.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the former Norwich City man appears intent on prolonging his stay with the Foxes and he could reject the Red Devils to sign a new and improved deal.

United have struggled to find a suitable player, who can make the difference in the number 10 role and the likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira have remained inconsistent with their showing.

Reece James off to Newcastle United?

James wanted by Newcastle on loan


Premier League side Newcastle United are reportedly planning a loan proposal for Chelsea defender Reece James when the transfer window reopens.

The Magpies have impressed under Steve Bruce this term but they are still aiming to bolstering their squad in the New Year to give their best chance of beating the drop.

According to The Sun, the Magpies are looking into an audacious loan swoop for James, who has yet to establish himself as a regular with the Blues under manager Frank Lampard.

The England youth international made his debut for the Blues last month with a goal and an assist against Grimsby in the League Cup but he has since been restricted to just one more start across all competitions.

In terms of the Premier League, he continues to remain behind Cesar Azpilicueta in the pecking order for the right-back spot and it remains to be seen whether the Blues are prepared to sanction his temporary exit.

Maddison set for Leicester City deal?


England international James Maddison will reportedly sign a new contract with the Foxes in the coming weeks, amidst interest from Premier League giants Man Utd. The Leicester City creative midfielder has been one of the top flight’s bright sparks so far this campaign, with his club now desperate to tie the player to a long-term new contract.

Since Maddison’s arrival from Norwich City, the midfielder has made his debut for England and has shone in the Premier League, helping Leicester City to the top half of the league table.

According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add creativity to his midfield and sees Maddison as the perfect acquisition for the January transfer window, but the price tag of £65 million could scare off the Old Trafford outfit.

It is also understood that Tottenham and Arsenal also hold a long-term interest in Maddison, while French giants Paris St Germain have deployed scouts to monitor Leicester City games in recent times. 

Maddison has three years remaining on his current contract.

James suffers minor ankle concern


Chelsea defender Reece James has reportedly withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad after suffering a minor recurrence of the ankle problem picked up during the summer.

The teenager returned from a lengthy ankle injury last month to make his Blues debut against Grimsby Town in the League Cup and he managed to impress with a goal and an assist.

According to Goal.com, James has sustained an ankle concern in training with the Young Lions and he has been sent back to the Blues’ Cobham base for further treatment.

However, the setback does not appear serious and he could return to regular training ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash against Newcastle United next weekend.

James has been touted by the fans as the future right-back of the club but manager Frank Lampard has so far resisted the prospect of starting him ahead of club-captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Chelsea are presently behind fourth-placed Leicester City on goal difference. They have the opportunity to win their fifth game on the bounce across all competitions when Newcastle visit the Bridge.
