James Maddison transfer news – odds: Newcastle still in hunt but England ace more likely to stay at Leicester

Date:

JAMES MADDISON is more likely to STAY at Leicester City this summer than depart for another club.

That’s according to Sky Bet, who have the Foxes at 4/6 to keep hold of their star playmaker.

The 25-year-old was the subject of a failed £40million bid from Saudi-backed Newcastle in this window.

Eddie Howe’s men have pinpointed Maddison as the perfect man to link midfield and attack to fire the Toon to a successful campaign.

Leicester knocked back the offer, with a figure close to £60million reportedly being the number they are after.

It’s understood Newcastle won’t go near that number but are still interested in taking him to St James’ Park.

And despite the lack of European football this season, Newcastle believe Maddison would want to make the switch too.

That is reflected in the betting, with Sky Bet pricing them as 7/4 to land Maddison in this window.

He has been in and out the England squad, though that’s partly down to the sheer volume of outstanding attacking midfield talent at Gareth Southgate’s disposal.

Despite Leicester having a quiet season last year, Maddison himself finished with 20 goal involvements – 12 goals and eight assists – in a productive personal season.

Spurs were reportedly interested in a move for him earlier in the window.

Antonio Conte has since splashed out on Richarlison to help bolster his attacking options, though Spurs remain in the betting at 8/1.

The other clubs quoted come in at much bigger odds, with Arsenal at 22/1 and Chelsea and Liverpool at 25/1.
