James Maddison has ended speculation about his future by signing a new four-year deal at Leicester.

The 23-year-old England international, who joined from Norwich two years ago and had been heavily linked with Manchester United, will now remain at the King Power Stadium until at least 2024.

“I’m so happy to sign a new contract for this football club,” Maddison told Leicester’s website, LCFC.com.

“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.”

Leicester finished fifth in the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers last season to qualify for the 2020/21 Europa League.

Maddison said: “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.

“I’ve enjoyed every moment since joining Leicester City.
