Leicester City playmaker James Maddison has said that he is delighted to have made the decision to join the Foxes and he has no plans of pursuing a fresh challenge elsewhere. The England international has been regularly linked with a move to Manchester United but any deal appears unlikely to happen this summer due to the player’s stance and the financial impact from the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to BT Sport, Maddison assured that he is fully committed to the Foxes and is looking forward to playing Champions League football with the Foxes for the first time in his career, he told: “Of course I am. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made, coming here. I love it. We’re just doing individual stuff at home. [Leicester manager] Brendan Rodgers sorted out his staff to send us stuff to do at home so we’re still keeping fit, we’re not sitting at home on the beers and the cakes, don’t worry about that! This situation is not ideal because we were doing so well and we were in the Champions League spaces. We just want to finish and try to secure one of those spaces because Champions League football is something I’ve always wanted to [play].”
