Newcastle haven’t given up hope of signing Leciester City midfielder James Maddison after failing to land him in the summer.

It is understood that Newcastle submitted bids for the 25-year-old worth up to £50million over the summer which were rejected by Leicester.

Maddison is one of the few Foxes players to come away with any credit following their dismal start to the Premier League season with three goals and one assist to his name so far.

According to Football Insider, Newcastle are planning to submit a fresh bid for Maddison in January.

Leicester value the player at £60million but they could be pressured to sell should their poor start to the season continue.
