Tottenham have made a significant breakthrough after agreeing personal terms and holding talks with Leicester City over the signing of James Maddison.

The England international has a year left on his contract but the general expectations were that he was always going to leave the Foxes once they were relegated from the Premier League.

Newcastle United were thought to be leaders but the signing of Sandro Tonali from AC Milan and Tottenham’s strong interest has turned the player's head and sources say a deal is now a matter of when and not if.

The Lilywhites have ironed out personal details with the player and Tottenham sources indicate that a fee in the region of £40million will be the starting point but both clubs want the get this done and move on to other targets.

Leicester want to boost their attacking options and have been linked with Fulham’s Tom Cairney as well as England international and Tottenham’s Harry Winks. They have also been speaking to Wolves defender Conor Coady as they look to bounce back straight away from Premier League relegation.

For Spurs, this will be a significant message to fans as they look to build from scratch having finished a disappointing eighth in the Premier League.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is determined to assemble the best players and sources say he’s been keen on getting Maddison to north London once he knew of the player's availability and contract situation.

Blessed with technical quality and incredible balance, Maddison is the kind of signing that gets fans on their seats and the fact that he is with Base Angency, the same group who manage newly appointed boss Ange Postecoglou is expected to make negotiations smooth.
