“He’s a good player in a bad side”- Simon Jordan backs England international to join Tottenham in the future

Leicester City’s James Maddison backed to join Tottenham Hotspur by Simon Jordan

James Maddison of Leicester City was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, as per Football.London.

The England international, however, did not move to N17 and stayed put at Leicester. The Foxes have begun this season in horrible form and Brendan Rodgers is facing the heat at the moment.

They have one point from seven games and with 22 goals conceded so far in seven games, they have the worst defence in the Premier League. Even Bournemouth, who let in 9 goals in a single game against Liverpool, have conceded fewer goals in the league so far (19).

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan, when speaking on TalkSPORT, was asked whether the former Norwich City star is a player capable of playing a top-six team. He said:

“I think he could play in Tottenham’s side. I think he could play in Arsenal’s side, if Arsenal are considered to be a top-six side other than just the temporary position that they’re in now and that may not be the long-term position they stay in.”

Jordan added that Maddison is a quality player who is playing in a poor team right now. The 25-year-old midfielder scored in Leicester’s 6-2 loss against the Lilywhites in the Premier League before the international break this month.

“He is a good player in a bad side in terms of the way Leicester are playing at this moment in time… I think James Maddison has all the talent to go up a level and go into a big-six club and perform at that level.”

Maddison is a quality player who can play as a number 10, in central midfield, and even down the flanks if needed. At 25, he is also in the prime years of his career.

However, it will be interesting to see what Leicester and Maddison himself think about his future if Leicester fail to improve drastically by the time the January transfer window opens.

Despite his brilliance, Maddison just has one senior England cap in his career. Perhaps playing for a big-six club can put a brighter spotlight on him in that regard. His current contract at the King Power Stadium expires in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt).
