OFFICIAL: Tottenham sign James Maddison from Leicester for £40m

James Maddison has completed his summer move to Tottenham for a reported £40million deal.

The England international has signed a five-year deal that will keep him at the North London club till 2028, bringing an end to his five-year association with Leicester.

Newcastle had also been interested in signing the England man, who had only a year left on his Leicester contract, but the Magpies have instead turned their focus to AC Milan’s Sandro Tonali.

Maddison becomes Tottenham’s second fresh addition this summer after the club signed Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario on a five-year deal earlier this week.

The 26-year-old began his career with Coventry City, progressing through the youth ranks to make his professional debut in August 2014 before moving to Championship side Norwich City in January 2016, where he finished as the club’s top scorer with 15 goals in his first full season.

He joined Leicester in a £20m deal in 2018, playing 203 games and scoring 55 goals. The midfielder won the FA Cup and Community Shield while at Leicester and netted 10 Premier League goals in his final season despite their relegation.
