    Leicester are making some serious moves to establish themselves as a top-10 club. I really would hate for Maddison to go to these cloggers, but if we can't offer him playing time, I guess it's a move that makes sense for him.

    He is a good back fill for Mahrez although he plays centrally

    25 mill for a player recovering from a serious knee op? Brave

    As ridiculous as it is, £25m is the new £10m. High potential, young, English football premium (prob adds £5m-£10m to the fee). The amount of money flowing through the game now, clubs don't need to give away players. They can just tell potential buyers to p1ss off, knowing that someone will come in with the money eventually.

    Fees have been crazy since forever but it seems to have gone to another level the last two seasons.

    ACLs can permanently take 10% off your game though. It's insane buying him for any amount, until you see how much he's been able to recover. Look at Jay Rodriguez's career after he did his.

    Gamble for pool so it means without the injury they would be asking more for him. I think recently it seems that acl ops are more successful than say 10 years ago.

    Why is he holding up the shirt he's wearing?

    He didn't have an op, just turned out to be strained ligaments rather than torn. He's due to start pre-season as normal.

    I have to admit this is a weird one. Way too easy for Leicester to get him.

    People were biding their time and Leicester just acted quicker

    it's possible he failed a medical somewhere else and word got around, some clubs are more willing to take the risk than others, although I accept that if that was the case it would probably reflect in the price whereas Leicester have paid top whack

    Apparently SCBC.

    Being a Coventry boy Leicester appeals as its much closer to home. And no Hughes of course.

    A very talented player, I guess the reluctance comes down to his position. Not many top teams will go for a rookie #10, and its a gamble for someone like us to buy him - will he get time to play and develop?

    Somewhere like Leicester would make sense as an interim move.

    Don't get the can't play away from home argument. It's max a 15 years career. To get financially set up for life.

    A trolley shelter in Tesco car park is an unusual choice of location for a photo call.
