Latest Tottenham Transfer News: James Maddison is on the verge of joining Spurs as the Foxes agree deal with Tottenham
Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur have successfully negotiated a £40 million transfer deal for the talented English midfielder, James Maddison.
Maddison, who has been a standout performer for Leicester since joining from Norwich City in 2018, had been the subject of intense speculation regarding his future following The Foxes’ relegation. However, with the agreement now in place, it seems that Maddison’s next chapter will take him to the white half of North London.
The signing of Leicester City midfielder James Maddison by Tottenham highlights the club’s dedication to strengthening their team under the leadership of new manager Ange Postecoglou. In addition to securing the services of Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario for approximately £17.2 million, Tottenham swiftly recognized Maddison as a crucial asset for their midfield. By acquiring him, they aim to add further creative impetus to the team.
Leicester City will be saying goodbye to a player who has played a vital role in their ascent as a dominant force in the Premier League. James Maddison’s exceptional vision, technical prowess, and goal-scoring ability have been fundamental to the Foxes’ accomplishments, and his departure will undoubtedly create a void as they strive to regain promotion to the Premier League.
With new manager Enzo Maresca leading the way, Leicester faces an important summer as they seek to revamp their squad. Aston Villa has acquired Youri Tielemans, and it has been confirmed that Caglar Soyuncu, Ayoze Perez, Daniel Amartey, Nampalys Mendy, and Ryan Bertrand will also be departing this summer. Harvey Barnes is expected to attract interest from other clubs while Timothy Castagne, Dennis Praet, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Wilfred Ndidi may also be sold.
The completion of this deal is subject to personal terms being agreed and a medical examination, but it is expected that Maddison will soon be donning the famous Lilywhite jersey for the upcoming season.
