Revealed: How much Leicester want for James Maddison after rejecting bid from Newcastle

Leicester City set their asking price for James Maddison after rejecting offer from Newcastle United.


On Friday, Newcastle United saw their opening offer for James Maddison rejected by Leicester City.

The Foxes are in a difficult situation right now as they are the only Premier League club yet to make a new signing.

Brendan Rodgers’ side need to move players on before bringing in new ones and, at the moment, their business is at a standstill.

Leicester set Maddison asking price

Newcastle’s rejected offer for Maddison was £40 million, according to Sky Sports.

The Foxes are understood to value the midfielder at closer to £60 million.

The Tyneside club are now considering whether or not to make an improved bid.

Tottenham have also been linked with a move for the 25-year-old.

Brendan Rodgers is determined to keep Maddison who finished last season very strongly.

He managed seven goal contributions in his final four Premier League matches.
