James Maddison has arrived at Tottenham as a big reinforcement. Judging by the matches played so far, the Englishman will really be a great reinforcement for Spurs. Although James was not interested in ending his story with Leicester City, he ultimately decided that it was time to say goodbye.

Maddison does not understand why many people were surprised when he chose Tottenham. “My time at Leicester didn't finish how I wanted it to and we obviously went down in the end which was very disappointing.
I wanted to end on a good note and go out on a positive, and it wasn't to be.
But you come to parts in life where you get set back and this was the next step for me.
People have asked ‘why Spurs?’ and whatnot, you have to make decisions.
You come to parts and points in your life, not just in your work, but in life as well, you have to make a decision

"- he said, as quoted by eurosport.com

Tottenham Spurs

Tottenham is one of the strongest clubs in England, and he had no dilemma when he received the offer. He knew that he would have a good opportunity to show his potential.

Spurs gave him everything, and Maddison will certainly reward it with assists and goals. “I could see myself playing for Spurs and I could see myself as a Tottenham Hotspur player.
I'm really happy. It's a brilliant club and it's a big club and you feel that when you arrive and I've been made to feel very welcome and stuff.
So hopefully we can have some success on the pitch."
James Maddison did not want to be part of the team that took Leicester to the bottom.

His goal is to play in the Premier League and show his qualities there. However, he has no doubts and believes that the Foxes will soon return to where they belong. “I was always going to play in the Premier League. I didn't want to go down just because I have such a good relationship, such a big love for Leicester.
And it's also the pride of us as players being… you don't want to be the team that took Leicester back to the Championship. Fingers crossed Leicester come straight back up and it looks like they have got a good chance to."
