Unfortunately for the exciting midfielder, he was forced to miss the Premier League’s conclusion on Sunday through injury as he watched his side lose 2-0 to Manchester United in a game which decided both sides’ European fate next season.

Despite a series of links with a move to none other than the likes of United, the 23-year-old is expected to remain with Leicester City, the club he has been at since 2018.

Representatives of Maddison have today confirmed to CaughtOffside that whisperings of their player extending a deal with current club Leicester City are a good indication of where his immediate future may lie.

The England international’s fine domestic form suggests he surely has what it takes to play for Man Utd or another major club in the Premier League or abroad, but it seems that move looks unlikely to happen in the very near future.

Ahead of next year’s European Championships, Maddison will be keen to get back to regular first-team football and keep impressing, both of which could be a deciding factor in his expected decision to stay at Leicester.

Maddison will also have the chance to showcase his talents on the Europa League’s platform next season after Brendan Rodgers’ side finished 5th in the league.
