Leicester City: James Maddison comments on playing at the very top following summer rumours

Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has spoken of his desire to play at the highest level.

The England man was linked with moves to some of England’s biggest clubs in the summer, and speaking to The Mirror, Maddison has confirmed that he intends on getting to the top if he can.

I want to play at the highest level my ability will allow me to,” Maddison said.

“I like to think I’ve my head screwed on with the transfers I’ve made. I’ve played League One, in Scotland, the Championship and the Premier League. I worked my way up.”

Maddison has been in fine form for Leicester ever since sealing a move to the club following his spell with Norwich City previously.

His attacking play last season saw him become one of the standout attacking midfielders in the top-flight, as he notched seven times and set up a further seven goals for his teammates in an impressive campaign for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Maddison also put in an impressive 205 crosses during the season and created 13 big chances for his team as he became a mainstay in the Foxes’ first XI.

The England man will be hoping to get his chance for his country this week when they take on Kosovo following their 4-0 hammering of Bulgaria yesterday.

It’s hard to see Maddison ending up anywhere but at one of the elite clubs in the next few seasons.

He’s clearly ambitious and trusts in his ability, so a move to a team like Manchester United or Manchester City might not be too far away.

He could be successful there based on his creativity, and if he continues to develop like he has been doing at Leicester, he should have a long and healthy career at the very top.
