Leicester City have enjoyed a terrific start to the season, currently sitting second, only behind leaders Liverpool.
They’ve only been beaten by Jurgen Klopp’s side and Manchester United and have won their last eight league games in a row.
There have been several standout performers, most notably Jamie Vardy, the Premier League’s leading goalscorer with 16 goals, including at least one in each of his last eight games.
Further back in the team, midfielder James Maddison has also caught the headlines with his performances under Brendan Rodgers.
The 23-year-old has scored seven goals and registered three assists in his 17 appearances this season, forming a very solid engine room alongside Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans.
Unsurprisingly, this has led to Maddison being linked with several big sides, with Manchester United and Liverpool two of the front-runners.
However, as with Rodgers, the Foxes seem keen to tie him down to a new contract, and that could be edging ever closer according to Jason Bourne.
I’m led to believe James Maddison is edging closer to agreeing a new contract with Leicester City.
