Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou can't wait to start working with exciting midfielder James Maddison after beating Newcastle United to his signature this summer.

Then they bagged imposing Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario after talks with Brentford for David Raya had slowed down to the surprise of many before adding Maddison to the growing list of new players this summer.

Maddison instantly stands out having been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and will bring a certain level of creativity and imagination to the Spurs team that has been lacking since the departure of Christian Eriksen.

And Postecoglou who by all accounts has already brought a feel-good factor to the club says he expects big things from the midfielder once he’s ready to go.

He told reporters: “[I’m] really excited to get him as part of the group. Any manager will tell you that part of the key to being a dominant team is having multiple attacking threats and having a midfielder who can score and create goals. They’re not easy to come by. He’s proven himself as somebody who can do that.

Tottenham finished eighth in the Premier League, without European football for the first time since 2010 and in need of a massive rebuild to get back to competing for big things.
