James Maddison has told Leicester City he is willing to stay at the club despite reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, according to the Sun.

Earlier this week, we relayed reports suggesting United have moved ahead of Spurs in the race to sign Maddison, who impressed during his debut Premier League season this term.

The 22-year-old has scored seven league goals and provided seven assists since joining Leicester from Norwich City last term.

And despite interest from United and Tottenham, it seems Maddison could end up staying at the King Power Stadium beyond the summer transfer window after reacting well to Brendan Rodgers’ impact at the club.

The Sun claims Maddison has told Leicester he may even sign a new contract if he ends up staying where he is as opposed to jumping ship to one of the big six.

Spurs might be in need of a new playmaker with Christian Eriksen admitting he may seek a new challenge amid speculation linking him with Real Madrid.

Maddison is just one of the names being mentioned as a potential Eriksen replacement, but it looks like a deal is unlikely at this stage.
