James Maddison left Championship team Leicester City for Tottenham Hotspur in a £40 million move

James Maddison’s £40 million transfer to Tottenham from Leicester City has been finalized. The England international has signed a long-term contract in north London that runs through 2028.
With his contract at Leicester expiring in a year and the Foxes moving down to the Championship, it was always believed that the 26-year-old would transfer this summer. Spurs and Newcastle United fought for his services. Maddison has chosen to sign a transfer to Tottenham over moving to the north east, despite the fact that the Magpies could have offered the player Champions League football as a result of their top-four finish.


Maddison’s first appearance in a Tottenham shirt may come against West Ham in Perth on Tuesday, July 18, as Tottenham have four friendly scheduled this summer before they embark on their preseason tour and face Shakhtar Donetsk at home on Sunday, August 6. Maddison will square up against his old team five days after the game against the Hammers when Tottenham plays Leicester in Bangkok.


Following the permanent arrivals of Dejan Kulusevski and Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli in Italy, the offensive midfielder is Spurs’ third summer addition.
