Spurs transfer news: James Maddison isn’t fazed by rumours of him leaving Leicester City
Leicester City star James Maddison isn’t being distracted by transfer talk after a great season. The England star swapped Norwich for Leicester at the start of the campaign and scored seven goals in the Premier League.
“No, you have just got to ignore that and take it all in your stride. As a 17 year-old boy I’d started five games for Coventry and saw on my phone that I was being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool.
“With transfer talk you need to take it as a compliment that people are even talking about you, it won’t distract me.”
Maddison is participating in the U21 Euros and is one of the stars to keep an eye on.
