“I’m so happy to sign a new contract for this Football Club. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a Leicester City player with so many positive things happening on and off the pitch and I’m delighted to be part of that.

What we’ve achieved as a Club this season is a huge step forward for us and I know there’s so much more to come from this team,” the club’s official website quoted Maddison as saying.

“I’ve enjoyed every moment since joining Leicester City. The supporters have been incredible to me and we have a fantastic set of players in that dressing room who are determined to show what we’re capable of doing together in both Europe and the Premier League next season,” he added.
